Dr Feras Dayoub

Senior Lecturer

School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology


I am an academic and researcher specializing in the intersection area of computer vision, machine learning, and robotics. Currently, I serve as a Senior Lecturer with the School of Computer Science and the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) at the University of Adelaide. Concurrently, I hold an Adjunct position at the Faculty of Engineering at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and an Associate Investigator with QUT Centre for Robotics (QCR). I served as a Chief Investigator of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision. My research focuses on enabling the reliable deployment of computer vision and machine learning on mobile robots in real-world environments. I gained a wealth of expertise in applied robotic vision research by participating in various exciting projects, ranging from leveraging machine learning for agricultural innovation and environmental conservation to advancing infrastructure monitoring through vision-based autonomous systems. As an educator for undergraduate students, I specialize in topics such as programming, computer vision, machine learning, and robotic perception.
