Flora Salim is a Professor in the School of Computing Technologies, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia, the co-Deputy Director of RMIT Centre for Information Discovery and Data Analytics (CIDDA), and an Associate Investigator of ARC Centre of Excellence in Automated Decision Making and Society.
Flora leads the IoT Analytics node, or the Context Recognition and Urban Intelligence (CRUISE) group.
Her research interests include human behaviour modelling, time-series and spatio-temporal data mining, machine learning on stream and sensor data, ubiquitous computing, and smart cities.
She was a Humboldt-Bayer Fellow (from Bayer Foundation GmbH), Humboldt Fellow -experienced researcher (from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation), Victoria Fellow 2018 (from Victorian government).
She was the recipient of the the RMIT Vice-Chancellor's Award for Research Excellence–Early Career Researcher 2016; the RMIT Award for Research Impact - Technology 2018; Victorian iAwards (2014), Australian Research Council (ARC) Postdoctoral Research Industry (APDI) Fellow (2012-2015); IBM Smarter Planet Industry Skills Innovation Award (2010). She serves as an Associate Editor of the PACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT), an Area Editor of Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal, and a Steering Committee member of ACM UbiComp.
Prof. Salim has received several ARC Linkage, a Discovery, and numerous international industry grants, including from Microsoft Research, Northrop Grumman Corporations, and Qatar National Research Funds. She was a Visiting Professor at University of Kassel, Germany, and University of Cambridge, UK, in 2019.
