Bio

Currently completing a PhD part-time at the University of Melbourne, interdisciplinary connections between urban planning, open source software, sustainability, and the governance of same.

With a background in computational science and participating in developing open source software drawing on a wide interdisciplinary skill base (such as the Underworld framework for computational geodynamics). I'm interested in how such 'complexes' of open production can be adopted to address challenging, contested problems in urban planning such as metropolitan-scale transport provision.

Research

My research interests include:

Open source software, urban modelling, public transport, sustainability, emergence, complex systems, Open GIS, reproducible research, deliberative and participatory democracy, computational science, Wikis and organisational dynamics.

As well as my academic affiliation to the Australasian Center for the Governance and Management of Urban Transportation (GAMUT) at the University of Melbourne, I participate in several other research networks, including the emerging transdisciplinary Kororoit Institute.
