Carys has worked in the Victorian public sector for over 15 years and has a track record of delivering innovative solutions to complex problems. She has a strong policy, collaboration and negotiation skills and a mindset to get things done.
Building on a strong academic background – BSc (Hons.), BA and MEnvSci and private consulting experience, Carys’ work with government has spanned many areas from land use planning to legislative reform and the management of threatened species. Most recently, this has involved leading a talented team of technical specialists to deliver Victoria’s foundational spatial products and services in the Land Information and Spatial Services branch.
Carys is now the Director of the Digital Twin Victoria program an innovative new pilot funded through the 2020/21 Victorian State Budget. The pilot program brings together digital twin technology, rich 3D and 4D spatial data, artificial intelligence and sensor data and more to visualise and model places virtually, before investments hit the ground.
The trial will bring together a whole host of currently disparate spatial data to develop digital models of Victoria – making it easier to accurately assess and plan projects remotely.
