Personal profile

Biography

My professional focus is aquatic ecology with an emphasis on the restoration of freshwaters. I have been working for over 15 years in the field and have over 17 publications in international journals. My research fields of interest include: urban stream ecology, environmental flow science, arid riverine ecology, freshwater fish biology, and biodiversity and ecosystem function. Much of my research is directed towards scientific solutions to meet management need.
