Patrick R. Rickles

Project Manager and GIS Architect |


I am an Implementation Analyst for the Department for Communities and Local Government involved in management and bespoke technology development to help achieve objectives for Ministers, the Executive Team and others on housing policies and development.

I am also a part-time PhD student researching how people learn and how we may better teach Geographic Information Systems (GIS) through interdisciplinary applications to aid in its successful uptake and application to analyses.

My work builds on a previous career in private sector employment, including Oil & Gas, Defense Contracting, and Urban Planning. For more information on my work or qualifications, please download and review my credentials and if you would like to know more, check out my Websites and Contact sections or email me.
