About the presenter
I am PhD candidate with the University of Wollongong and CSIRO. My project is entitled “Development of new risk assessment tools for nickel in tropical marine environments”. The aim is to contribute to the development of ecologically relevant risk assessment tools such as water quality guidelines and bioavailability based models, to support the sustainable development of nickel mining in tropical regions. I also works part time as a Research Technician within the Coastal Ecosystems and Modelling team, CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere. I am involved in commercial projects looking at changes in the structure and diversity of estuarine benthic communities in response to environmental and anthropogenic impacts through the use of ecogenomic techniques. My hobbies include cooking, pilates, gardening, hiking and diving.
