World Leading Data Scientists

DARE is a multidisciplinary ARC Training Centre that trains a new generation of world-leading data scientists with applied domain knowledge through a collaborative program between five Australian universities. The program is led by The University of Sydney and in partnership with the University of New South Wales, the University of Western Australia, Macquarie University and the Australian National University.

Our PhD candidates have the opportunity to take part in research projects with our Industry and government partners to improve the informed decision-making needed for the management of Australian resources and the Environment.

We have brought together leading academics across the disciplines of Mathematics and Statistics, Computer Science and three applied domains of Minerals, Biodiversity and Water. Our internationally recognised team includes Willem Vervoort (Sydney), Robert Kohn (UNSW), Mark Lindsay (UWA), Mark Jessell (UWA), Edward Cripps (UWA), Lucy Marshall (Macquarie), Glenda Wardle (Sydney) and David Warton (UNSW).

The ARC Training Centre in Data Analytics for Resources and Environments is funded by the Australian Government and industry partners through Australian Research Council Industrial Transformation Research Program.
