Dr John Galloway founded NetMap Analytics in 1991. NetMap Analytics successfully develops and markets unique networking software and services applied to business intelligence problems and data mining. John’s postgraduate studies were supervised by the acclaimed ‘diffusion of innovations’ pioneer, Everett Rogers. This interest resulted in him later developing the NetMap networking and diffusion visualisation software and an accompanying methodology termed Network Data Mining (NDM). NetMap Analytics products and services are now used by national security and intelligence agencies in various countries and by organisations in finance and banking, retail, telecommunications and other areas of government. Users of NetMap include 15 of the top 20 general insurance companies in the USA.
John is also an Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Business at the University of Technology, Sydney and the founder of the university’s Complex Systems Research Centre. His research interests include visual modelling of the properties of networks and “emergence” in complex dynamic systems. Through his research, collaborative relationships have been established with other institutions, including Princeton University, the Union of International Associations, the London School of Economics and the Fraunhofer Institute.
He gained a BA degree by external study from UNE and then Masters and PhD degrees at Michigan State University. He then held senior academic posts at UNSW and Macquarie before beginning his own company, NetMap Analytics.
Dr Galloway has published one book, twenty refereed articles, and has presented some sixty or more conference papers.
In 2005 he was invited to become a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Analysts of Australia, and more recently recognised among 824 fellow countrymen and women who were selected for the 2015 Australia Day Honours List.
