Rajib Rana

Rajib Rana

Professor – Computer Science, University of Southern Queensland and Chair, ACS QLD Downs and South West Chapter

Associate Professor Rajib Rana has made distinguished contributions to the field, intersecting Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Affective Computing. He has developed the world’s first technique to determine mood from a spontaneous day-to-day phone conversation. A persistent decline in mood indicates the onset of relapses in mental illness. Therefore, this can be used to detect relapse in mental illness early, potentially preventing 60% of hospitalisation, keeping people at work/education, and consequently making significant savings in the country’s economy. Dr Rana is also developing the world’s first technology to detect hoax calls in emergency services. One-third of the calls made to the emergency services are hoaxes, which can potentially take lives, taking away valuable resources from someone who needs it. Preliminary results show that the developed techniques can predict suicide risk from emergency phone calls with more than 70% accuracy.

Dr Rana received two consecutive Advance Queensland Research Fellowships (2017 and 2020), which is rare. He is the iAwards 2021 QLD winner in the Government and public sector.  His innovation has also brought him the prestigious Young Tall Poppy Award (QLD) award 2018 as one of the 14 of Queensland’s most outstanding scientists for scientific research and communication. He was also awarded the Australia-China Young Scientist Exchange Fellowship (one of the 16 in Australia) for his research leadership and contribution and the potential to become a science ambassador for China and Australia.

Dr Rana is the founder and director of the IoT-Health research program at USQ. He currently has 40 members, including USQ staff, collaborators from leading National and International organisations, and Higher Degree Students. Presently, he is also the director of the Master of Data Science program at USQ, one of the most emerging fields in ICT.

Dr Rana received the B.Sc. degree in computer science and engineering from Khulna University, with the Prime Minister and President’s Gold Medal for outstanding achievements, and the Ph.D. degree in computer science and engineering from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, in 2011. He received his postdoctoral training with the Autonomous System Laboratory, CSIRO, before joining the University of Southern Queensland in 2015.
