Ross Brown is a Senior Lecturer with the Science and Technology Faculty, QUT, where he is a member of the Business Process Management (BPM) Research Discipline. He also teaches computer graphics and final year project units in the QUT Bachelor of Games and Interactive Entertainment.
His main research interests are in the application of 3D games technology to other research domains. In particular, his latest research involves the development of virtual world technology applied to tasks in the BPM life cycle. A number of projects are currently underway, including: the embedding of executable workflows in virtual environments, collaborative 3D process modelling, 3D visualisation of process models, and the development of immersive interfaces for process elicitation.
Enormous effort is invested in monitoring the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), but data collection is currently fragmented over dozens of publicly and privately funded organisations, with data collected using different methods and for different purposes. As a result, the data are rarely analysed together.
