I am a lecturer at RMIT University, in the School of Engineering.
My teaching and research are predominantly in the fields of hydrogeology, geochemistry and environmental engineering.
My PhD involved using geochemical indicators to improve understanding of the controls on groundwater quality, and the sustainability of groundwater extraction in an area of intensive agriculture in northern China.
My research focuses on using environmental tracers, modelling and other techniques to understand the effects of various processes and activities - such as groundwater extraction for mining & agriculture, climate change and contamination - on groundwater systems.
I have a particular interest in water pollution and other environmental issues in China, and am a fluent speaker of mandarin.
I am involved in collaborative research with Melbourne Water, EPA Victoria, DELWP Victoria, Monash, La Trobe and Federation Universities, ANSTO, The China Academy of Sciences and Wakayama University Japan.
