I'm Liann, originally from Ireland and recently settled in Melbourne. I studied a BA in Geography in Maynooth University, Ireland and continued my studies in Scotland where I obtained an MSc in Geographic Information Systems from the University of Edinburgh. 

I started my career in the U.K. civil service as a GIS analyst and progressed to technical lead for Earth Observation projects. The projects focused on using 2D optical satellite imagery for crop classifications in England. I then moved to Melbourne in 2018 and started working as a spatial analyst in the utilities sector which provided LiDAR capture and classification solutions. I then progressed to a project manager role in the same team where I focused on delivering LiDAR and Imagery solutions to external clients for utility network management. I have recently started as a technical consultant providing solutions for data management and transformation and working towards FME Professional and Trainer accreditation.
