Dr Craig Robson

Research Associate



Employed as a research assistant since January 2015 within the Geomatics department of the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Newcastle University. I am also completing a PhD which I started in 2011 within the department which is focused on the resilience of critical spatial infrastructures to geographic hazards. This proceeded graduating from the GIS (Geographic Information Science) degree within the department in the summer of 2011. My current work is funded by ITRC where I am involved the development of a set of dissemination tools for the first national systems-of-systems infrastructure analysis framework.
