Research Overview


  • Hugh is involved in research projects for the Digital Living Lab, social media in responses to disasters, street-level traffic emissions and SMART’s Vision Illawarra. His background is in agent based modelling, spatial data analysis, marine ecology, health and web mapping. The SMART Fire Hydrants map received the 2017 Service Innovation Award (IoT category) of the Service Science Society of Australia. The map shows firefighters the locations of fire hydrants that can otherwise be difficult to find, so improves their response times to fire calls. Other areas of interest include quantitative ecology and theoretical evolution.
