Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology
I am a Research Fellow in the Biogeochemical Research Group with research interests in soil geochemistry, coastal acid sulfate soils, geochemical and hydrological modelling, water quality, water chemistry, environmental resource management and geochemical effects of climate change. Emily has recently completed her PhD which examined the geochemical changes arising in coastal soils due to sea level rise, with a focus on iron and sulfate reduction, coupled sulfur and strontium isotope methods and carbon cycling. Previously, Emily worked as Scientific Officer South Australian Environment Protection Authority on issues relating to water and groundwater quality, particularly in Lower Lakes and Tributaries in South Australia during and after the severe hydrological drought. Emily left this role to pursue higher level research at the University of Adelaide in 2018. Emily is active in the soil science community and is passionate about promoting soil education and training, organising soil workshops, webinars, student training and field trips for Soil Science Australia.
