Investigating the hydrology of the Fitzroy River to protect the iconic sawfish
Research team leader: Dr Matt Hipsey
I am a multi-disciplinary environmental scientist who works in the area of aquatic systems science and ecohydrology, with a particular focus on environmental modelling. I currently lead the Aquatic Ecodynamics (AED) Group at UWA, where I supervise several post-doctoral fellows, and PhD students undertaking research to understand how aquatic systems respond to climate and land-use change.
The successful candidate will collaborate closely with Dr Adrian Gleiss (Murdoch University), Dr Nicola Mitchell (UWA) and Dr Michael Kearney (University of Melbourne).
