I received my Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree, majoring in Environmental Science and Marine Biology, in 2007 from James Cook University. I received a first class honours degree in 2009 from Southern Cross University with work addressing nutrient cycling in constructed wetlands. I am currently undertaking my PhD 'Unravelling the transport, cycling and treatment of nutrients in carbonate sand groundwater systems'. This project involves using novel technologies to describe the drivers behind eutrophication in coral sand systems and designing new treatment systems suited to developing communities. I have interests in applying radioisotope techniques to describe groundwater and atmospheric soils gas fluxes.
