About Philip Belesky

I am a designer, developer, and educator who likes to work on design tools.

Currently I am part of a team that develops an application for modelling timelines. It helps people build fictional worlds, understand intricate histories, and plan complex projects.

As an academic, I worked on tools for designing landscapes. My teaching and research worked between mapping as a way of understanding environmental systems and procedural generation as a means of forming design action.

My PhD was completed as part of the Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory and the Office of Urban Transformation Research. After completing my thesis, I worked at RMIT University as a Lecturer in the Landscape Architecture Discipline and acted as the Program Manger of its MLA degree.

I’ve also worked as a developer a various tech companies, as a consulting computational designer, and as a sessional academic. Before moving to Melbourne, I completed a MLA, a BAS, and a BA at Victoria University of Wellington.

You can say hi by shooting me an email. A list of my publications is available on ORCID, and many of my projects are on GitHub.
