James is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Global Food and Resources at the University of Adelaide. James is a hydrologist with over 10 years’ experience in water resources and flood modelling for Government and private consultancy. Most recently James worked at the SA Department Environment, Water and Natural Resources where he provided scientific advice including: the SA River Murray Water Allocation Plan (released October 2017), impacts of the Sustainable Diversion Limit process on the South Australian River Murray and has conducted hydrodynamic modelling of the Lower Lakes, Murray Mouth and Coorong to assess the potential impacts of barrage release strategies and environmental water delivery. James has extensive experience in flood modelling and assessment in South Australia and provided hydrological advice to the State Emergency Service as part of the state Incident Management Team during the state wide flood event in September/October 2016.

James’ PhD Thesis seeks to explore changes to water resources of the Murray Darling Basin from increased environmental water, water trading and the implementation of State and Federal policies.
