Mr Jamie Vleeshouwer

Senior Experimental Scientist

Contact details:


Jamie is a senior software engineer who focuses on taking complex software-intensive research problems and turns them into simplicity. There's nothing worse than software systems that are too hard to use, or just don't work, right?

For the past 14 years Jamie has lead teams and been actively involved in research, design and implementation of large scale environmental modelling projects such as:

  • Workflows for comprehensive water assessments of the Murray Darling Basin and Northern Australia
  • The Australian Water Resources Assessment System - for the Bureau of Meteorology
  • Calibration of continental scale land surface models
  • Inter-operable web services for exchange of soil information
  • Irrigation Decision Support Systems
  • Machine learning techniques to assist with farm scale soil mapping
  • Monitoring platforms to assess the impact of floodplain vegetation and groundwater dependent assets
  • Visualisation tools for the Northern Australia Water Resource Assesments

In his spare time, Jamie enjoy's heading to the beach for a surf, bumping a beach volleyball around, or trying to strum a new song out on the guitar.
