Personal profile


Ellie's current profession is in geographical art, running her own business ellie.geo.art. She is a fine arts landscape painter and teaches beginner acrylic painting classes. Ellie holds an adjunct lecturer position with UWA and contributes to research and supervision in environmental geography. She has worked with multiple not-for-profit organisations in Perth.


Ellie’s research interests mainly encompass the spatial and temporal analysis of environmental data, predominantly within the fields of water resources and climate change. The focus of her doctoral research was on hydrological modelling of rural catchments and the spatiotemporal analysis of hydroclimatological time-series data. The latter has also influenced research investigating precipitation change (extreme events) in Nepal. Her current research uses spatial mapping to look at changes in water vulnerability, water (in)security, poverty and environmental change. Ellie has worked on projects which look at environmental risk/vulnerability, the links between climate and tea production, and also the synergies between the water-energy-food nexus and sustainable livelihoods.
