Rob Saunders is a Lecturer in Design Computing at the Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition in the University of Sydney. In 1995 he gained a BSc in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science from the University of Edinburgh. In 2002 he was awarded a PhD from the University of Sydney for his work on Curious Design Agents and Artificial Creativity. He joined the University of Sydney as a Lecturer in Design Computing in 2006. From 2002 until his return to Sydney in 2006 Rob lived in London where he worked on a number of interdisciplinary projects with artists, designers, and scientists. During this time he developed biological simulations of stem cell systems as part of the CELL project, working closely with the mathematician Mark d'Inverno, the artist Jane Prophet and the liver pathologist Neil Theise. As a consultant, Rob worked with the designers at an international advertising agency to develop an intelligent logo design system. He has also worked with the artist James Coupe on two projects, 9PIN++ and Difference Engine, developing autonomous artworks that have been exhibited in galleries across the UK and more recently in the USA. With his return to Sydney Rob focussed his attention on his primary research interest, developing computational models of creativity, but continues to collaborate with people from a variety of disciplines around the world.
