I have completed a Masters of Science in Internetworking at UTS (Sydney, Australia) and a PhD in X3D-UML: User-Centred Design, Implementation and Evaluation of 3D UML Using X3D at RMIT (Melbourne, Australia).

Ever since I started using a computer I have been fascinated with graphics, however to get graphics to work, you need to get the computer to work first (i.e. program it). In theory computers can be made to do all manner of wondeful things, however in practice it takes more effort than should be necessary. This frustration has lead me to researching the use of visual tools for software engineering tasks.
