A geospatial scientist by training and research, I am working across Eurasia. After obtaining my PhD degree in 2003, I worked as a research scientist at Earthquake Disaster Mitigation Research Center, Kobe, Japan before joined Chiba University as a postdoctoral researcher in between 2006 and 2007. In both places, I focused in employment of geospatial technologies in disaster mitigation and management. I then joined GEO Grid team of National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan to further expand the research onto high-performance computing platform. In 2008, I joined Geoinformatics division, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden as a lecturer and researcher. In early 2011, I took the position at University of Nottingham, Malaysia campus and assisted the establishment of the School of Geography and new MSc programmes at Malaysia campus. I am now an Associate Professor of the School of Geography and Head of OSGEO research lab, a member of ICA-OSGEO lab network (geoforall)
