Biography

Sherine Antoun, PhD, views himself primarily as a facilitator of learning, rather than as an expert who simply delivers information to students. He is always conscious of his students’ different learning styles, rates of learning, what they have already learned and what they will need to learn in the future. Feedback from his students is vital to the process of growth he has undergone since he began teaching. Antoun said that he has gained feedback and improved the pacing of lectures and effective ways to help his students learn in small group discussions.

Antoun has been invited to share his knowledge as a guest lecture and speaker at the following events:

  • 2018 Mining CTFM Echo Signal Data for Navigation
  • IEEE Intelligent Systems Conference (IntelliSys)
  • 2015 Perception for Robotics in Hostile Environments
  • The Industry Workshop Talk at the 6th Annual Conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures, Lyon France
  • 2015 Adapting perception techniques of vision-impaired humans for Robotic Autonomous Navigation
  • Research graduate seminars 2015 UIS
  • 2013 Cryptography Complexity and Graphs
  • 2012 Echolocation from nature to mobile robots
  • Informatics colloquium June 2012 UOW
  • 2004 - 2005 Innovations in Document Storage and Retrieval
  • Informatics colloquium 2004 and guest lecture 2005 UOW
