Aviation application developer

Current work and responsibilities

I specialise in developing Java based web applications and often execute full SDLCs (Software Development Life Cycle). In addition I have considerable experience with many aspects of Java, Object Oriented and Graphical applications in Linux and Windows platforms. Some of the software applications I developed include the Volcanic Ash Warning Preparation System (VAWS) and the Fog Decision Support System (FDSS).

I successfully port software applications to operational implementations, develop documentation and provid operational support. I am currently involved in porting the Dispersion Ensemble Prediction System to operational implementation on the Bureau's supercomputer. I provide IT support to the WEP Aviation team.
