Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on ecological engineering with specialisations in: water sensitive urban design, mine drainage treatment, municipal wastewater constructed wetlands, novel passive treatment systems, plant functional ecology, ecosystem services, and systems ecology. My most recent projects have focused on the roles of plants and fungi in stormwater biofilters, plant health in green roofs, and maintenance of water senstive urban design assets.
