Personal profile

Biography

Professor Greg Ivey is Deputy Dean/ Deputy Dean Research in the Faculty of Engineering Computing and Mathematics, and is Winthrop Professor of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics in the School of Environmental Systems Engineering and the UWA Oceans Institute.

He has a BEng (Hons) and MEngSc from UWA, and a PhD from the University of California at Berkeley. He has worked at the National Water Research Institute in Burlington, Ontario and the Australian National University, and has been a visiting professor at the Institute de Mecanique de Grenoble, Stanford University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research is in the area of physical oceanography, focusing on ocean mixing, internal waves and currents in both the coastal and open ocean environments.

He has taught in the Environmental Engineering program at UWA and was Head of the School of Environmental Systems Engineering from 2004 to 2007. He is a Fellow of Engineers Australia and a member of the Australian Research Council College of Experts
