About our speakers:
Corrado Cacciarru, CGeog (FRGS), MSc, MBA, is the GIS Transformation Lead for the Lower Thames Crossing (LTC), Highway England’s largest infrastructure project to date. In a career spanning over twenty years, Corrado has supported research at academic and industry level, helping organisations redesign and transform their business, culture, capacity and performance through the use of GIS. At LTC, Corrado is responsible for identifying project delivery requirements and ensuring that the Common Data Environment (CDE) is available to all workstreams – checking and reporting on potential risks and opportunities that can affect project legacy, benefits and project delivery. Corrado manages the delivery of the GIS Strategy and Execution plan, leading the implementation of the GIS infrastructures, promoting best practice and technical standards, providing training, chairing focus groups and engaging with internal and external stakeholders to encourage data sharing, innovation, and “one team” collaboration.
Dr Claire Ellul is a Reader in Geographical Information Science (GIS) at University College London. After working for 10 years as a GIS systems integrator and consultant, Claire moved to academia in 2003, completing her PhD in 2007. Her research focusses on 3D GIS and GeoBIM (the integration of GIS and BIM) and how this relates to Smart Cities, digital twins and a potential ‘single source of truth’ for the built environment, with particular focus on the benefits of seamless integration throughout a project’s lifecycle.
We look forward to welcoming you to this event!
