After graduating with a MSc in Biology and Biochemistry in Germany in 1995, Uwe was looking to diversifying into combining biological and computer science. Coming to Australia this eventually resulted in graduating in 2000 at the University of Tasmania with a MSc in Computer Science.
After working in the field of software systems integration in private industry for some years, he returned to science to support ocean modelling efforts at CSIRO. Later became the lead architect in CSIRO’s relocatable modelling system to support access to forecast models for use by meteorologists at the Royal Australian Navy. Uwe also led CSIRO’s technical development in the ocean renewables related research, including the ARENA-CSIRO Australian Wave Energy Atlas, and its integration into AREMI which continued with the AUSTen project deployment into AREMI. In the last years he has focused on Machine Learning technologies applied to Marine Debris and addressing Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing activities.
