Biography

Dr Tanin's research interests include Spatial Databases and Mobile Data Management. He has graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park in 2001 before joining the University of Melbourne. He is an Associate Editor of ACM TSAS and served as a PC Chair for ACM SIGSPATIAL 2011 and 2012. He was elected to serve as the Treasurer for ACM SIGSPATIAL and served in this role till 2017. Dr Tanin was also recently elected to be the next secretary of the SIG. Dr Tanin is also the co-founder of ACM SIGSPATIAL Australia as well as the founding editor for ACM SIGSPATIAL Special. He has supervised 13 postgraduate students to completion and more than 100 papers in related areas published in top venues such as the VLDB Journal, SIGSPATIAL, etc. He has won more than $2.5M in grants, with many ARC Discovery Project Grants in the last 10 years.
