PhD Candidate
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

I completed my undergraduate degree at the end of 2012 and started a PhD in 2014. In my PhD I am investigating how to optimise pump operation in water systems to minimise economic costs, greenhouse gas emissions and energy use. In particular I am focusing on water systems that use multiple alternative water sources such as harvested stormwater, groundwater, recycled wastewater and imported water. I am passionate about the environment and sustainability and at some stage in my career I would like to work in providing water solutions for developing regions.

Dr Katharine Bartsch

Senior Lecturer
Faculty of the Professions

My research examines how human mobility shapes the built environment, specifically Islamic architecture. Islam is a global faith and it has never existed in a vacuum. The emergence and diffusion of Islam can be traced along routes of migration, pilgrimage, trade, or travel in pursuit of knowledge. Given this context of mobility and the cultural encounters that it engenders, the goal of my research is to interpret the complexity and diversity of Muslim communities that is materialised in the built environment.
