    CV


    SUMMARY

    I have 20 years of experience in research and software development with a broad range of skills from different industries and academia. I have 5 years of experience as University Lecturer at the Universities of Sydney and Wollongong, Australia. My key skills are remote sensing, climate modelling, radiative transfer, instrumentation, satellite observations, GIS, data analysis, image processing and spectroscopy. I have strong skills in software development in mathematically complex fields. I have a doctorate and Masters in physics with minors in chemistry and biology.


    MAJOR AREAS OF KNOWLEDGE

    • Earth system modelling; atmospheric composition, transport and chemistry; biosphere

    • Radiative transfer, remote sensing, spectroscopy and signal processing

    • Interpretation of satellite observations and processing of satellite raw observations.

    • Computational physics and advanced software development

    • Image processing & image analysis including 3D.

    • Instrumentation and instrumental control

    • Software development in C, C++, Python, Java, FORTRAN, TCL on Linux and Windows.

    • Advanced user of Linux supercomputing clusters

    • Teaching, mentoring, scientific writing


    PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES

    • Hands-on person who takes initiative and delivers on time

    • Well-organised and self-driven with attention to detail

    • Team player with a positive attitude.

    • Excellent communication skills


    MANAGEMENT

    Solid skills in managing teams and tasks: As Technology Manager for a bio-technology company, I was responsible for the IT area and all things technical and contributed to the company growth from 10 to 75 employees over a 4 years period. For example, I suggested and implemented a backup power generator which only 2 weeks after completion protected the company from loosing its core assets (frozen & live cell-lines) during a 6 hours power outage. At University I managed industry linkage grants, the development of a new type of spectrometer and have been supervising and mentoring students. In earlier work I noticed inconsistencies in a central remote sensing code from NASA and took the lead in its revision which required perseverance and diplomatic skills. I even participated in 4 Arctic expeditions, thereof one as expedition leader.

    PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

    I am presently working as a climate modeller with the earth system model EC-Earth quantifying the feed-back of changes in soil moisture. I have implemented improved corrections on satellite imagery to allow for higher spatial resolution products such as woody/non-woody vegetation. These annual state-wide products are used routinely in NSW for compliance cases. I co-developped the first lunar FTIR spectrometer which has been operated routinely on Spitsbergen since 1994. I have created a number of instrumental control and user interface software for a nuclear research facility. I lead the development of a prototype delta-sigma Fourier Transform Spectrometer, a copy of which was sold to CSIRO. Real-time signal-processing allows to correct for imperfections in the mechanical movement of the scanning mirror thus improving the quality of the spectra recorded substantially. I developed a software suite for the analysis of atmospheric remote sensing data that is respected internationally as is evident from my consultancy roles. I have also developed proprietary software for electrophoresis gel analysis and DNA sequence matching which all were critical for the successful filing of over 50 patents. I have designed and developed 3D medical imaging software that is being used at Sydney hospitals. It assists clinicians in the identification and quantitative classification of pulmonary diseases and is based on a texture analysis of the lung tissue. I have written scientific and technical reports and user manuals. I am the principal author of a spectroscopic atlas that has been sold in 16 countries.


    FINANCIAL

    I have always kept my projects within budget and delivered on time. I'm experienced at writing competitive grant applications, nationally and internationally.
