CyberPhysical Systems Research Program
Glynn Rogers began his career as an antenna and microwave systems engineer working in avionics, initially with AWA Engineering Products Division and subsequently with the CSIRO Division of Radiophysics. In the early 1980s he moved into signal and image processing applying tomographic imaging techniques in mining geophysics. This resulted in his leading a team developing a software package for the Radio Imaging Method which saw application in the Australian mining industry. During this period he also led the development of an experimental prototype for a mine communications system for transmitting emergency and management information from surface to underground independently of the mine infrastructure. This was commercialised by an Australian company and is currently installed in over 150 mines around the world.
In the late 1990s he played a leading role in establishing a research programme in advanced network technology which was the basis of a major Australian Government project, CeNTIE, to demonstrate the commercial potential of wide area, fibre optic broadband networks. He was the Networks Research Leader and served on the CeNTIE Management Committee. During this period he also played a role in establishing the CSIRO Centre for Complex Systems Science and was a founding member of the Centre’s Executive.
He retired from CSIRO in 2008 as a Senior Principal Research Engineer and subsequently joined National ICT Australia part time for a short period working on trust and privacy measurement in on-line social networks. He is now a Visiting Scientist with Data61-CSIRO.
