Short Bio

Last comments


For many years, I have been a professional meteorologist, pushing technology and processes to their limits - whether high performance computing, seriously massive storage, telecoms, scientific visualisation, data formats or mathematical algorithms in NWP or Data Assimilation. I spent several years managerially responsible for 24/7 operational production of safety critical products and emergency response activities. Still active in international projects, collaborations and standardisation, sometimes at the leading edge, other times capacity building in least developed countries to ensure nobody gets left behind. Recently, I have been actively involved with geospatial standards in various OGC and W3C groups to improve cross-domain interoperability of data, and elected to the OGC Architecture Board.
