I obtained my PhD in 2002 from the School of Electrical Engineering and ComputerScience, University of Newcastle, in Australia. After a year as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Business and Technology Laboratory in the University of Newcastle, Australia, I joined the School of IT at James Cook University, Australia. I have been actively involved in working on broad areas of geoinformatics and intelligence informatics. My research interests include geospatial data mining, multiple classifiers, geospatial databases, conceptual spaces, Web 2.0, map segmentation, clustering, geo-visualisation, internet of things, and Voronoi tessellations. Currently, I am working for intelligence and health informatics for the Tropics.

Current Funding

Current and recent Research Funding to JCU is shown by funding source and project.

Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group Inc - Contract Research

Kimberley - Wet Tropics Wildlife on Virtual Reality

Indicative Funding
This project will further develop 'Kimberley' the 3D virtual reality tree-kangaroo to the stage where the 'experience' can go live to the public at the Malanda Falls Visitor Centre. This project further extends 3D tree-Kangaroo with Virtual Reality and artificial intelligence.

Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group Inc - Contract Research

Wildlife in Virtual Reality - a New Way to Educate and Engage

Indicative Funding
This project will harness rapidly evolving technologies to create an exciting new product for raising community awareness of conservation issues. Specifically, the project will use the latest computer wizardry to allow people (locals, visitors, students) to have the unique experience of getting up close and personal with a Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo through virtual reality.
