Toowoomba Regional Council September 2007 - at PresentI love technology in all its diversity and engage with as many aspects of it as I can, irrespective of whether it relates to my day-job, because the most fantastic ideas come from the most unexpected places.
The potential of IoT, 3D printing, robotics and social networks is huge and far from fully explored and exploited. I dabble with embedded systems and am working on my own tiny robots.
What do I do in my day-job, then? I'm the lead flood forecasting engineer, manage our flood forecasting system and work with our disaster management coordinator and related disaster management services to reduce risk to life and property due to flooding.
A big part of my role is to carry out hydrological and hydraulic modelling and analysis.
