Josh McCulloch

Josh is a Postdoc in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Canterbury. He is working on the Maaratech Project and other projects with Professor Richard Green.

“In my research, I have developed a system to automate the process of surveying overhead powerlines using a vehicle-mounted LIDAR. During the first year of my PhD, I worked as a software developer for Australasia’s biggest e-commerce platform provider. More recently I have worked as a Research Engineer in the Spatial Engineering Research Centre. It is in this role where I built and flew an unmanned aerial test platform for testing a prototype snow radar in Antarctica. I also had the chance to supervise students and interns on a wide array of projects from pest and wildlife tracking to the development of a system for automated high altitude volcanic ash sampling.”
