About Philip Belesky
I am a developer and designer who likes to work on tools for making models.
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 modelling designed 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 sessional academic, a consulting computational designer, a freelance designer, and as a developer at various tech companies. 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.
