Biography

Katie has a bachelors degree in Geomatic Engineering from the University of Melbourne which she completed in 2009. During this time she completed her final year research project in the area of disaster management. The research focused on the roles and opportunities for spatial information in bushfire recovery. As part of the research the 2009 Victorian bushfire disaster was used as a case study. During her time as an undergraduate Katie was employed at a mapping and photogrammetry firm based in Melbourne.

Katie commenced her PhD in December 2009 at the University of Melbourne in the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration. Her current research includes an investigation into Australian land administration systems and risk management processes within Australia to determine whether land and property information could support societal risk management.
