Aina is a data scientist with a background in quantitative science. At KPMG, she works in Digital Delta and uses data to help clients make fact-based decisions about their business to better utilise their resources and improve the satisfaction of their customers.
Prior to KPMG, Aina worked with the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science where she developed a pipeline for processing raw data, selecting appropriate calibration data and outputting science images and spectra collected by the Anglo-Australian Telescope, the largest optical telescope in Australia. She was involved in developing the Australian Astronomical Observatory Data Central (ADC) application, an online archive that serves spectra, data cubes, tables and image datasets collected by major Australian ground telescopes.
Aina completed her PhD at The University of Sydney, where she developed a machine learning technique suitable for processing large volumes of X-ray data and automatic classification of X-ray sources detected by space telescopes. This technique is applicable for processing the data to be collected by the eROSITA telescope now that it has reached its orbit and commenced surveying the whole sky.
