Ori Allon, 29, arrived in Australia from Israel over ten years ago and completed Bachelor and Masters Degrees at Melbourne’s Monash University.

He moved to Sydney to pursue research in computer engineering at the University of New South Wales developing new techniques for search engines as part of a PhD

Google snapped up the technology and Allon  in 2006. Now based at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, Allon will see the fruits of his labour come to fruition today as Google updates the way its search engine operates.

A spokesman for the University of New South Wales told J-Wire: “Ori is still officially registered as a student.  He has been short-listed to win our Inventor of the Year Award and will be in Sydney next month when it is announced. Then two days later, he will be awarded his PhD.”

Users will now receive greatly improved results for specific searches…a facility which will enhance the way billions of people around the world use the Internet
