Biography

I currently work as a Senior Lecturer( Water Engineering)at the University of Southern Queensland. Prior to this,I worked as a Principal Hydrogeologist at CRC CARE (Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of Environment) which is a national center of excellence for contaminants assessment and environmental remediation and headquartered at the University of Newcastle. In my role as Senior Lecturer, I am engaged in teaching and research in the areas of hydrology, water resources and environmental sciences. I have done my PhD from University of South Australia in 2009 with specialization in water resources and environmental engineering. Over the past 13 years of my academic and research career based at University of South Australia and University of Newcastle, I played significant role in conducted cutting edge research in the area of water resources and environmental engineering
