Moein Mehrolhassani and Tomas Cereceda join AURIN as Project Coordinators

We are excited to have recently welcomed Moein Mehrolhassani and Tomas Cereda, who have joined AURIN’s Project Support team as Project Coordinators. Moein will be focused on the ATRC (Australian Transport Research Cloud), while Tomas will be coordinating our HIP (High Impact Projects) program and the AURIN-ALA Built Environments Biodiversity Project.

Moein has a Bachelor of Computer Engineering from UT-Kish, as well as a Master of Information Systems, a Master of Computer Engineering and a PhD in Computer Engineering from Eastern Mediterranean University. He has eight years of experience working on projects and initiatives at the University of Melbourne as a Project Manager, Team Lead, Business Analyst, Data Analyst and Service Transition Analyst, working across a large number of teams and organisational units.

He loves nature and travelling and enjoys playing tennis, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking. In his downtime, he enjoys watching movies or listening to music.

“The joy of delivering value and having a positive impact through a successful project makes me feel energic and excited. AURIN has already delivered several high impact projects within the government and industry across Australia. I believe being part of AURIN and working with such enthusiastic people will make me even more energetic and excited – I’m already feeling it,” Moein says.

Tomas has a Bachelor of Commerce with majors in Finance and Marketing from Deakin University. Before moving into project management, he worked for a software development company in client-facing roles in sales and operations for several years. He has experience in medium to large scale projects, with a background in managing software development and enterprise level change management projects.

Tomas loves to read, and snowboards whenever the weather permits in the Melbourne’s ever-changing climate.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to be working with the High Impact Projects, and seeing them develop over their lifespan here at AURIN. I’m amazed at the level of detail and information that our research partners are able to use in their research. I’m excited to work alongside the project partners and read about the outcomes that will be developed through the High Impact Projects,” Tomas says.

We look forward to working with Moein and Tomas as the ATRC and HIPs continue to develop over 2022 and beyond.
