Allison Kealy is an internationally recognised leading researcher in the field of Geodesy. Her research contributions are particularly focused in the high-impact application areas of transport, emergency management, defence, and critical infrastructure. She has developed an extensive network of industry and government collaborators who have funded their research programs, including: the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Plan Jericho Department of Defence, Air Services Australia, Bushfire CRC, Frontier SI and CRC for Spatial Information, Defence Science and Technology (DST), Emergency Services Telecommunications Agency (ESTA), IBM Research Australia, Emergency Management Victoria (EMV), Victorian Department of Infrastructure (now Transport), Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
Their research track record demonstrates their ability to connect to key stakeholders and deliver transformative and collaborative multi-disciplinary solutions. Digital innovation and high standards of governance in the public sector underpin all of their research grant success. It is notable that these programs of work extend well beyond their fundamental domain of satellite positioning and geodesy. This work pushes into broader, more diverse applications and technology domains, which require high-level communications and collaborative skills.
Training and mentoring the next generation of Surveying and Spatial scientists research is also the hallmark of my research. To date, they have been a primary supervisor of 14 graduated PhD research students: Dr Yan Li (PhD, Completed 02/20); Dr Lisa Cheong (PhD, Completed 06/19): Dr Andrej Peisker (PhD, 06/19); Dr Melissa Shahrom (PhD, 07/18); Dr Azmir Hasnur Rabiain (PhD, 07/18); Dr Salil Goel (PhD, 12/17); Dr Alan Both (PhD, 05/16); Dr Grant Hausler (PhD, 04/14); Dr Zaffar Mohamed Ghouse (PhD, 04/09); Dr Steven Scott-Young (PhD, 06/04); Dr Jessica Davies (PhD, 07/05); Dr Neil Brown (PhD, 04/07); Dr Paul Grgich (PhD, 07/08); Dr Susannah Hope (PhD, 08/08).
