Biography

Always interested in innovative IT technologies, I take a holistic approach to software development: from the data up to the UX, with due considerations given to deployment and operations. I have been working on data analytics, software development, and geospatial technologies since graduation in Statistics (1991); first as an ESRI employee, then (1997-2012) as a free-lance consultant, and currently as a member of the professional staff at the University of Melbourne. During these years I have developed numerous software applications, designed architectures and databases, led development teams, contributed to open-source projects. I am currently designing the next generation platform for the urban research community at the AURIN project; building on geospatial databases, serverless cloud technologies, and end-user coding. The architecture is being defined iteratively, incorporating feedback from the user community.
