2001: PhD in Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, JCU, Townsville.
1997: BE (Hons 1) in Computer Systems Engineering, JCU, Townsville.
Current Research ActivitiesThe main focus of my work is developing on-line systems that manage environmental research data and its use in modelling and the generation of synthesis reporting products. My current research projects include a report card data management system for Gladstone, visualising and generating reporting products from eReefs modelling and remote sensing data and managing the eAtlas for the National Environmental Science Program Tropical Water Quality Hub. I also recently completed the development of high resolution mapping of the reefs of Torres Strait.
