Jenny Davis is a research professor at Charles Darwin University. She contributes to freshwater ecology and management as a researcher, a university teacher, a PhD supervisor and as a member of national and international committees. She has advanced the understanding of global wetlands through research on wetland loss, hydrological change, eutrophication and salinization. Her current projects seek to identify the patterns and processes that support surface and groundwater-dependent waterbodies in arid, semi-arid and wet/dry tropical regions and the persistence of aquatic biota and refugia.
