Prior to joining the IC in 2015, I worked as a consultant and academic researcher for a couple of decades.
I am one of the co-authors of the 2014 CSIRO report "Innovation Study: Challenges and Opportunities for Australia’s Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums" which used foresight methods as a way to integrate perceptions of the chief challenges facing the GLAM sector in Australia.
Around that time, I worked as a professional futurist teaching and practicing foresight as a resource for strategy and innovation for individuals and companies.
I have held senior research roles at Queensland University of Technology in the Smart Services CRC, at NICTA (now Data61) and I spent ten years working in collaboration and social media research at the Enterprise Distributed Systems CRC.
I have a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Queensland. Once upon a time I used to actually write code. Now I just talk about it.
