Richard Farnsworth

Austrailan Synchrotron Project

Richard Farnsworth is the Lead Control Systems Engineer for
the Austrailan Synchrotron Project. He is responsible for the systems
design, specification, procurement, testing and integration of the
computer instrumentation, control and diagnostics for the project.
Richard is from Melbourne and comes from an IT and engineering
background, having worked on systems for a variety of utilities,
including water supply, sewerage, railways and power authorities. These
have been predominantly related to real-time process control. So, if the
water comes out of your taps, the trains run, the toilet flushes away,
or the lights turn on, chances are some of the systems he has worked on
helped to make that happen.
