Background

I'm originally from Co. Down, N. Ireland, and studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Queen's University Belfast. My PhD thesis title was "Environmental Analysis through fusion of Vision-based information and Geographical Information Systems" and many of the areas I investigated during that work back in 2000-2004 remain strong interests today. The thesis is available to download.

I've been interested in computer programming from a young age. In the mid-1990s I competed in the first 3 years of the All-Ireland Schools Programming Competition! In 2002 I started contributing to open source software and have become particularly involved with a number of open source projects, notably GRASS GIS where I'm currently a member of the project steering committee. See GIS Work for more details on some of my work with GRASS.

In recent years my life-long interest in radio has led my work more towards audio and video processing, and I'm currently working on some interesting development projects for Radiomonitor. See Digital Audio & Video Projects for more details on some of my digital media work.
