Bojan Tamburic

Lecturer

I am a Lecturer at the School of Civil and Environmental Engineer at UNSW Sydney and Project Manager of the Nuisance and Harmful Algae Science-Practice Partnership. Previously, I was Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Deputy Leader of the Algal Biosystems Team at the University of Technology Sydney. I have a multidisciplinary scientific/engineering background with a BSc in Physics, an MSc in Sustainable Energy and a PhD in Biochemical Engineering, all from Imperial College London.
