About me

I specialize in hydrogeochemistry, applying extensive  technical knowledge to a wide range of environmental problems in water environments.  My experience is in regional scale My_photo1groundwater systems and river basins in Australia and around the world.

My career includes 24 years as scientist, project leader and program leader at CSIRO Land and Water. I spent 6 years at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University,  New York carrying out a range of projects including acid rain impacts on lakes and nuclear waste disposal. I also spent two years at the International Atomic Energy, Vienna coordinating a range of isotope hydrology projects in large groundwater and river basins.

My book “Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology” remains the standard reference in the field today. I also continue to serve as Adjunct Professor, School of the Environment, Flinders University of South Australia.
