I am a Lecturer in the discipline of Geomatics with research interests in the area of Spatial Information Science, urban structure and network analysis, spatial databases and geographic information retrieval. My research thus contributes to numerous areas of spatial cognitive engineering.
I have a broad experience in design, implementation and management of the technical aspects of large-scale geospatial infrastructures and data handling, such as the design and implementation of a strategic Australian eResearch portal AURIN - The Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network's flagship product.
