Dr Michael Reid

Dr Michael Reid is an independent software consultant with commercial experience using both J2EE and J2SE development platforms. He was awarded a PhD in Physics in 2002 where he developed software to find planetary gravitational microlensing events as part of the the New Zealand/Japanese MOA (Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics) project. He has been using Java since the first 1.0 beta, although performance concerns meant it became his primary development platform at version 1.2. Of particular interest are Java's capabilities in visualisation and computation.
