Personal profile

Industrial relevance

I have conducted research at UWA with scientists from Alcoa World Alumina, Australia through the ARC Linkage Grant scheme since 2004. The overall research aims have been to improve fundamental understanding of soil processes in rehabilitated and natural ecosystems. This understanding is necessary to assist industry in the long-term sustainable management of rehabilitated areas after mining and mining residue storage areas.
