Profile

Glenn joined Unitec in 2010 to handle the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) courses offered by the Department of Natural Sciences. He has a Doctor of Engineering from the University of Tokyo, an MS Engineering from the University of Washington and a BSc Fisheries from the University of the Philippines. While teaching at the College of Fisheries and Ocean Science of the University of the Philippines Visayas, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue GIS research at Oregon State University in 2004.
