Terry is the Australian Access Federation (AAF) Technical Engagement and Support Manager. In early 2009 Terry managed the AAF Pilot project that boot-strapped today’s AAF operation. Terry is responsible for providing support and training activities to the AAF subscriber community as well as working directly with subscribers to provide advanced technical integrations. Terry is an experienced IT professional who has been working in Identity and Access Management in the tertiary sector for more than 25 years.

Terry has been the chair of the APAN Identity and Access Management working group since 2017. The working group aims to advance the uptake of identity federations across the APAN region. Over the past few years we have seen an increase in the awareness and uptake of eduroam, the global wireless roaming services and the birth of a number of identity federations in Hong Kong (HKAF), Singapore (SGSG), Malaysia (SIFULAN), Pakistan (PKIFED) and India (INFED) as well as the growth and expansion of existing federation across the region. As the APAN IAM Working chair Terry was invited to provide a plenary talk on Identity and Access Management in the Asia Pacific region at APAN47 in Korea.

In 2019 Terry was elected Chair of the eduGAIN steering committee. Terry also is an active member of the international REFEDS (Research and Education Federations) Schema Board.
