Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the nexus of ecology and engineering with specialisations in: water sensitive urban design, ecological engineering, mine drainage treatment, municipal wastewater constructed wetlands, novel passive treatment systems, plant functional ecology, ecosystem services, and systems ecology. Currently, I am working on projects with the following foci: ecological benefits of green infrastructure, sensor networks for monitoring performance of stormwater treatment and retention systems (and potentially implementing real-time control), and plant functional ecology in urban ecosystems.
