Patrick R. Rickles

Technical Project Manager and GIS Solutions Architect |


I am the Head of Digital Skills and Innovation for the Oil and Gas Authority, involved in driving continuous improvement of digital and data services provided to industry, academia, government and society.

My role engages many of the topics covered in my PhD, which was on how to improve the Geographic Information System (GIS) learning experience for people from different disciplines. This includes concepts such as digital educational approaches, data mining, screen scraping, usability testing, multi-modal qualitative analyses and the establishment of novel frameworks for learning technologies.

These build on my previous roles in academia and private sector employment, including Community Engagement, Oil & Gas, Defence Contracting, and Urban Planning. For more information on my work or qualifications, please download and review my credentials.
