Patrick R. Rickles

Project Manager and GIS Architect |


I am a Research Associate for the Extreme Citizen Science research group at University College London, currently working on the Challenging RISK project, where I am involved in management and bespoke technology development to help achieve research aims.

I am also a part-time PhD student researching how people learn and how we may better teach Geographic Information Systems (GIS) through interdisciplinary applications to aid in its successful uptake and application to analyses. You can help advance my research by completing a short survey, if you have had to learn GIS as part of your interdisciplinary work.

My work at UCL builds on top of a previous career in private sector employment, including Oil & Gas, Defense Contracting, and Urban Planning. For more information on my work or qualifications, please download and review my credentials and if you'd like to know more, check out my Websites and Contact sections or email me.
