Personal Description : I currently working at Australia's National Computational Infrastructure in the high performance data team, on making point clouds into useful data services; open geospatial data; enabling as-yet-unheard-of discoveries as a function of open data and accessible tools. I'm very strongly motivated to promote the use of open geospatial tools - removing barriers to serious geospatial data analysis.

I have a doctorate in surveying technology from the University of Tasmania, based on estimating sea ice thickness at high resolution by combining airborne LiDAR, digital photogrammetry, field observations (yes! I love to drill holes in ice!), and upward looking sonar from an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.

Formerly worked for the Australian Antarctic Division, on object-based classification of sea ice using aerial photography (among many other things including but not limited to a lot of logistics).

I also like to ski, climb rocks and ride mountain bikes as fast as possible. And sit under trees and watch the sky.
