Bio: 

Dr Gudes is an early career researcher with expertise in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), spatial analysis, and spatial science. His areas of research focus on: GIS and Health, spatial analysis, decision support systems, city analytics and usability evaluation. Dr Gudes has confirmed his international reputation as a leader in GIS and Health and urban planning research. He has established collaborations with US, Canadian and Israeli researchers in GIS through scientific committees, editorial board memberships, joint studies and conferences he has organised. He has been teaching GIS, web mapping, and spatial analysis courses and workshops since 2008 at both QUT, Griffith University, Curtin University and UNSW.

 

 

Research Activities: 

Dr Gudes has a strong background in GIS, spatial analysis with the intersection of urban planning, and development of scenario planning tools.

Teaching & Supervision: 

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Courses taught:

  • GIS and Urban Informatics, UNSW, NSW, Australia (2018)
  • Web Mapping, Curtin University, WA, Australia (2014-2016)
  • GIS workshops for beginners, Griffith University (2010-2017)
  • Introduction to GIS, Curtin University, WA, Australia (2014-2016)
  • Basics of GIS , QUT, Queensland, Australia (2008-2013)
Supervision Area: 

Currently, I am supervising a Scientia PhD student (Kazi Mohammad Zillur Rahman) at UNSW. His work entitled "Wastewater indicators of antibiotic resistance in the community" aims to establish the prevalence and trends in Antimicrobial Resistance in the community using sewage wastewater. As part of this work, I will assist him in developing a model of antibiotic resistance in the community by spatially mapped the information on antibiotics and resistance across the city and the state of NSW. 

 

I have successfully co-supervised to completion two PhD students (Mark Runkowski & Agustina Barros) at Griffith University (one with distinction). My recent graduated PhD student (Runkowski) completed his degree with distinction and with no further revisions; Also, I supervised to completion one master student (Cristina Dias) at Curtin University, the title of her work was: A crowdsourced web mapping application for street art in Perth.

 

Dr Gudes has been teaching GIS, web mapping, and spatial analysis courses and workshops since 2008 at both QUT, Griffith University, Curtin University and UNSW.
