|Norwegian Polar Institute
|Personal Description :
| I currently work as a postodoctoral researcher at the Norwegian Polar Institute, understanding sea ice structure and morphology in the northern Barents Sea.
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.
I'm very strongly motivated to promote the use of open geospatial tools for developing geospatial strategies, research and development - removing barriers to serious data analysis.
I also like to ski, climb rocks and ride mountain bikes as fast as possible. And sit under trees and watch the sky.I’m an OSGeo charter member, and helped to found OSGeo Oceania. I was part of the local organising committee for FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2018 and 2019, and director of OSGeo Oceania in 2019 and 2020.
