I am Director of the Information in Society EIP (Enabling Impact Platform) and Professor in Geospatial Sciences at RMIT University.

At RMIT, I have occupied a number of senior leadership roles, including: Acting Dean STEMM Diversity and Inclusion, Associate Dean of Geospatial Science, and Deputy Head of the School of Mathematical and Geospatial Sciences.

Previously, I was also Science Director for the CRC for Spatial Information (CRCSI) Rapid Spatial Analytics Program and before joining RMIT I was Professor in Geographic Information Science within the department of Infrastructure Engineering at the University of Melbourne, when I also held a visiting Professor position and the University of Greenwich.


My research focuses on the area of Geographic Information Science, particularly distributed and robust computation and visualisation with uncertain spatial and spatiotemporal information, within the domain of mobile, location aware and sensor enabled systems.


I have taught a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in connection with spatial computing, in particular, spatial visualisation and spatial databases.

I am also an author of the widely used GIS textbook, GIS A Computing Perspective, now in its third edition.
