I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide with research interests in soil geochemistry, coastal acid sulfate soils, geochemical and hydrological modelling, water quality, water chemistry, environmental resource management and soil geochemical changes as a results of climate change. My current research project is examining geochemical changes in coastal soils in South Australia following sea water intrusion as a result of sea level rise.
