Jacqui completed her PhD in Archaeology at La Trobe University in 2011. She has been a vital part of many Andrew Long + Associates projects as a GIS Officer and Lithic Artefact Analyst since 2012.
Since joining Andrew Long + Associates, Jacqui has brought her high level GIS skills to our GIS team with a particular focus on the production of maps and spatial data for Cultural Heritage Management Plans. She works to optimise the potential of GIS for managing, interpreting and communicating the significance of large, complex data sets to ensure project deliverables are able to be met accurately and efficiently.
