Matthew Dunbabin

Professor Matthew Dunbabin joined QUT in 2013. He is known internationally for his research into field robotics, particularly environmental robots, and their application to large-scale marine and aquatic ecosystem process monitoring. He has wide research interests including vision-based perception and classification, vision-based navigation, adaptive sampling and path planning, and cooperative robotics. His current research within the Centre is focused on “environmental vision”. This involves the development and use of advanced computer vision techniques to detect and quantify change within the environment and to improve the perception and monitoring performance of robots operating in challenging and dynamic environments.

Professor Dunbabin received his Bachelor of Engineering in Aerospace Engineering from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and his PhD from QUT.  He started his professional career in 1995 as a project engineer at Roaduser Research International, and following his PhD joined the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in the Autonomous Systems Laboratory. At CSIRO he held various roles including Principal Research Scientist, project leader and the Robotics Systems and Marine Robotics team leader before moving to QUT in 2013.
