Serryn Eagleson

B Geom(Hons)/BArts(Melb), PhD

Topic & Interest Areas

GIS, Demographics,  City dynamics, Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and the design of administrative boundaries

Current Projects

Serryn is currently involved in two projects within the Centre for SDI and Land Administration. First is the spatial enablement of health data — this project aims to provide health organisations with access to spatially enabled health data so they can plan for the future.  The second is co-editing the monthly Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Asia Pacific newsletter.


Since Serryn completed her PhD in GIS and the design of administrative boundaries in 2003 she has spent three years at Curtin University in Western Australia. At Curtin she lectured on spatial analysis and researched techniques for the early detection of disease outbreaks.  Since returning to Melbourne in 2007 Serryn has been working as the Future Melbourne research coordinator for the City of Melbourne. Future Melbourne is a plan to grow Melbourne as a sustainable city to global standards.  Serryn is also a part-time research fellow at the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration at the University of Melbourne.
