Last week, Woolpert Director of Operations – Asia-Pacific, Glenn Morrison, presented the prestigious Woolpert Geospatial Prize, which recognises outstanding work within Curtin University’s Spatial Sciences Community.
The University School of Earth and Planetary Sciences and the annual award, formerly the AAM Survey Prize, have a long-standing connection to Woolpert, (formerly AAM) with origins tracing back to the mid-90s. Sponsoring this award aligns closely to a core Woolpert value of supporting – as the award helps to support the development of the next generation of Surveying professionals.
This year, the Woolpert Geospatial Prize was awarded to Liam Boyle. An active member of the Spatial Sciences cohort, we are honoured to recognise and celebrate Liam’s dedication to the school and faculty through this award.
Liam completed a Bachelor of Surveying (Honours) last year, and has since embarked on studying a Doctorate of Philosophy (Spatial Sciences) in close range photogrammetry to assist with Clinical Health Assessment. On top of his studies, he has excelled in leadership roles, acting as treasurer and co-president of the Western Australian Spatial Sciences Association. Further to this, for the last three years Liam has held a student member role on the University’s Spatial Sciences Advisory Board. He has a keen interest in Hydrographic, Drone Mapping and Photogrammetry.
Curtin University Alumni and current Chair of the faculty’s Advisory Board, Glenn Morrison joined the university’s School of Earth and Planetary Sciences to present Liam with the Woolpert Geospatial Prize.
Congratulations Liam, we can’t wait to see what you do next in your studies and bright career!
