Career Summary

Biography

One of my main contributions to the research field of ecohydraulics, geomorphology and water resources restoration is the design of in-channel structures of the pool-riffle type to naturalize low-gradient urban streams. Pools and riffles are fundamental elements of natural river systems responsible for providing the geomorphological-ecological variability necessary for a healthy habitat, and are typically absent in channelized urban floodways. As part of my PhD, I carried out a comprehensive three-dimensional analysis of the hydraulics of pool-riffle structures in order to maximize their ecological functionality.

During the last four years at the University of Newcastle I have developed a strong research group (two PhD students and one postdoc) in ecohydraulics and restoration of estuarine and riverine environments. This research has produced 12 conference publications and a number of journal papers that are currently in preparation. I am either team leader or first named CI in two grants from ARC (LP in estuarine wetland ecohydraulics and LP in riparian restoration). I am also a CI in the eWater CRC, working in urban ecohydraulics. Being an Early Career Researcher (PhD Sept. 2003) and starting a new research group has resulted in a relatively low productivity in terms of journal papers, which are in the process of preparation or submission.
