Armin is a Lecturer in the School of Law at the University of Wollongong (UOW). His interdisciplinary research sits at the intersection of law, technology, science and philosophy. His publications and talks focus on the social, ethical and legal impact of emerging technologies such as machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), neuroscience and genetics. Armin’s current projects include studying the way technology is shaping the future of the legal profession (collaborating with Deakin University), and the potential use of AI in sentencing (collaborating with the University of Brawijaya). Armin has a great sense of innovation in teaching and learning and currently collaborating with colleagues at UNSW Sydney to build and prototype research and educational tools with an open-source artificial intelligence (https://safetofailai.streamlit.app).
Before joining UOW, Armin worked with colleagues at the Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation (UTS) developing ethics and AI teaching material for policy sector delivery. He has also worked with the Australian Neurolaw Database Project (neurolaw.edu.au), archiving and analysing Australian court cases involving neuroscience.
In 2021, Armin received the Faculty of Business and Law Sessional Award for Outstanding Contribution to Teaching and Learning (OCTAL). He was subsequently inducted as a Fellow into the Wollongong Academy for Tertiary Teaching & Learning Excellence (WATTLE). Armin’s new research-led course, Law and Emerging Technologies, will be offered to UOW students for the first time in 2023.
