Manager Technical Projects
Andrew is the Manager, Technical Projects at CeRDI. Andrew completed a Bachelor of Computing at the University of Ballarat, followed by an Honors in Applied Science (Information Technology). Employed at CeRDI since 1999 and leading the technical team since 2002, Andrew has extensive experience in web and geospatial technologies with a particular interest in data standards and interoperability. While much of his work is applied within Australia, Andrew has been an active participant in several Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) domain working groups, standards working groups and interoperability experiments across Soils, Groundwater and Environmental data. Currently enrolled as a PhD candidate supported by the Food Agility Cooperative Research Centre, focused on the application of semantic interoperability within Agriculture and Food.
Andrew commenced his PhD with CeRDI in June 2021.
Access to data provides the fuel for next generation decision support systems, and opportunities for sharing data across national and international borders, and across government, industry and academic sectors, have never been greater.
