August 2021 | CSIRO’s Data61 researcher named one of the most impactful in the world
This achievement means my research in the past couple of years (2013-2020) has been recognised in the software engineering research community, which is my home research community. In particular, I am pleased that it is about the research impact which is what drives me every day and also a key part of CSIRO’s mission.

Dr Mehwish Nasim shares how an algorithm used to seek bot activity on Twitter was updated to identify misinformation during COVID-19.
June 2020 – How you can a-void a voice spoofing attack
Dr Ejaz Ahmed talks through the Data61-built 'Void' system which differentiates between live human voice and loudspeaker voice to detect spoof attacks.
May 2020 – Fact vs Fake: Targeting misinformation on social media
It’s getting harder to distinguish between fact and fiction on your social media feed. Dr. Mehwish Nasim shares what CSIRO's Data61 and ACEMS are doing to tackle the problem.
