A diverse life! Current research interests focus on data services for point clouds (from any source) using a FOSS stack, and ongoing work using airborne LiDAR to estimate Antarctic sea ice thickness. My work at NCI since early 2016 revolves around developing ways to exploit NCI's geospatial data holdings, using a range of web based technologies. Prior to that I worked as a bicycle mechanic while finishing a PhD on sea ice thickness estimation. My PhD, in turn, was based on work I did for the Australian Antarctic division as an airborne survey operator (LiDAR + aerial camera + GPS deployment), and as a field technician. In that life I developed innovative methods to co-register several different datasets, each collected in their own reference frame, on drifting sea ice.
