Myeonghun, Jeong is a PhD candidate in the department of Geomatics, University of Melbourne. Myeonghun had worked as a software developer and studied Civil Engineering (BSc) and GIS (MSc) in South Korea. His research interest includes decentralized geospatial computing, and has a publication on initial work in monitoring topological region relations in geosensor networks in ACMGIS. Further information is available at Myeonghun’s homepage (http://myeonghun.org).
Jeremy is a graduate research student interested in environmental applications of sensor networks and spatial data (including analysis of tagged fish movements). He has previously worked in government and industry in analysis and environmental data management roles.
Azadeh is a PhD candidate in Infrastructure Department at the university of Melbourne. She has previously worked in Governmental and private organizations in Iran as GIS analyser. She is so motivated in developing spatial algorithms in environmental and Urban management analysis.
Lisa commenced as a PhD candidate in December 2011, having previously worked in various GIS analytical roles across Victorian state government with her focus being in the emergency services sector. Lisa obtained a Bachelor of Information Technology and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Queensland and completed her Masters in Geospatial Information at RMIT University in 2006.
Her research focuses on developing techniques for visualising uncertainty and evaluating these techniques for decision making in bushfire analysis and disaster management.
Farzad commenced his PhD at the University of Melbourne in February 2012 on Decentralized Spatial Computing (DeSC). He obtained a Master of GIS and also a BSc in Geomatics Engineering from K. N. Toosi University of Technology (KNTU), Tehran, Iran. Before commencing his PhD, Farzad was involved in various research projects related to GIS in Iran, titled: “Design and Implementation of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for Iranian Gas Transmission Company” and “Developing Standards for National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) in Medium and Small Scales”.
Alan commenced his PhD in May 2012 after completing a Bachelor of Geomatics Engineering and a Bachelor of Science with a major in Geology at the University of Melbourne. His research is currently focused on developing decentralised algorithms for geosensor networks which determine the spatial relationships between sensed objects.
