Vik Olliver
Senior Analyst, The RepRap Project


By day, Vik is a mild-mannered systems analyst for New Zealand’s leading Open Source company, Catalyst IT. By night, he transforms into a teleworking researcher in 3D fabrication for The RepRap Project at Bath University in the UK.

He shares his time unevenly between the above, a wife, 2 daughters and 6 cats.
