Research

I am currently associated with a number of projects that involve data management, visualisation and reporting of environmental data. 

My activities associated with the GHHP DIMS system include the configuration and administration of the DIMS server, the development of the DIMS Report Card System server software and the setup of new datasets in the system. 

I also maintain and develop the eAtlas systems including Drupal development, the AtlasMapper mapping client and server maintenance.
