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.
