I am a member of the following professional associations:
I am an affiliate member of the Network of Excellence in Internet Science. The EINS aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of Internet networks and their co-evolution with society, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European research in this area. Its main objective is to enable an open and productive dialogue between all disciplines which study Internet systems from any technological or humanistic perspective, and which in turn are being transformed by continuous advances in Internet functionality.
I am a student member of Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA). EFA is a non-profit national organisation that has been promoting digital freedom, access and privacy in Australia since 1994. Their major objectives are to protect and promote the civil liberties of users and operators of computer based communications systems such as the Internet, to advocate the amendment of laws and regulations in Australia and elsewhere (both current and proposed) which restrict free speech and to educate the community at large about the social, political, and civil liberties issues involved in the use of computer based communications systems.
I am a volunteer member of the Australasian Institute of Maritime Archaeology, offering my services as their website administrator. The Australasian Institute for Maritime Archaeology (AIMA) is an incorporated, not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to the preservation of underwater cultural heritage. Based in Australia, it has sponsored work throughout Australia, Asia and the Indian and Pacific Ocean regions. AIMA’s objectives are to support and undertake research within the field of maritime archaeology and to publish the results of this work.
