Armin Alimardani


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 artificial intelligence ( Armin’s new research-led course, Law and Emerging Technologies, is offered to UOW students for the first time in 2023.
