Biography

Paul leads a CSIRO research team developing interoperable systems of systems or ‘Information Infrastructure’. Paul has worked for more than 25 years in geospatial information technology field. Prior to joining CSIRO in 2009 worked for 15 years throughout Asia, Europe, and Africa for United Nations, government, and not for profit organizations designing, implementing and managing geospatial capability across a wide diversity of application areas in sustainable development and humanitarian response.

For the past 10 years, Paul has been actively involved in research, design and implementation of large scale cross-enterprise Information Infrastructure. This work has focused primarily on the design and delivery of integrated suites of geospatial information products and improving the efficiency of information supply chains.

More recently, Paul has focused attention on addressing the social rather than technical challenges of building Information Infrastructure. Coherent integrated approaches to addressing the social, institutional and economic challenges of infrastructure development are being elaborated through ‘social architecture’. This approach supplements traditional technical architecture led approaches and are being used to support the design and implementation of information infrastructure in multiple domains.
