Hodson, Computer Systems Engineer and Director.
Mark joined Block Software in January
2003. Previously, he worked for Tenix Defence in the areas of information
security and hydrography. Mark has also had several short-term placements
with the Defence Science and Technology Organisation. He graduated with BE
1st class honours, top-of-class from Adelaide University
in the Computer Systems Engineering discipline in 1999.
Mark's talents lean toward high-speed,
specialised and optimised data processing tasks. These are often the back
bone of systems and require keen understanding of systems architecture and
data processing algorithms. Mark prefers to implement his solutions in
C/C++ and assembly language, but also has experience with ADA and Matlab. He has been formally
trained in C/C++, Java, ITSEC (Australian information security standards),
Quality Assurance (ISO9001) and Systems Engineering. Recently, Mark has
been involved in the design and implementation of world class simulation
architectures for hybrid discrete and continuous time models.
Mark works best in a small team with
well defined roles and is competent at leading system and software
engineering effort in such a team. He enjoys a challenge.
Besides software, Mark has engineering
experience in custom hardware integration with embedded and large computer
systems, system deployment for large (>$10M) systems, LAN/SAN
architecture and hardware, system administration and training.
