Congratulations to our CIRES Centre Director Professor Shazia Sadiq on receiving a UQ Faculty Staff Excellence Award for Leadership!
Shazia has been a devoted lecturer for two decades, and an advocate for improving personalised learning and graduate outcomes. In 2012, she received an institutional award for teaching excellence and in 2016 she spearheaded the highly successful Master of Data Science program at UQ that is helping overcome skill shortages in Queensland for qualified data scientists. Shazia is also leading UQ’s AI Collaboratory, bringing together the research strengths of UQ experts spanning across several areas to present a strong portfolio of fundamental knowledge critical for the future of AI.
Shazia is passionate about the positive impact emerging technologies from data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence can have on our future. She advocates for responsible and ethical technology developments and believes strongly that these developments require trans-disciplinary collaborations between research, industry, government, and community.
