Henry Petersen

Dr Henry Petersen
Research Fellow


Since 2017 Henry worked as part of the High Performance Architecture cluster at UNSW. His work has focused on developing the Urban Heat Island Mitigation Decision Support tool, and identifying local methods for mitigating excess urban heat. Prior to this he has worked on projects involving a range of government, industry, and academic partners across a number of fields including GIS, bioinformatics, text mining, biomedical information retrieval, and image processing. He received his PhD from the School of IT at the University of Sydney in 2016, and has an interest in data mining/machine learning with a particular focus on supporting real users via integration into practical workflows.
