I have a PhD in physical oceanography and my area is land-ocean interaction, particularly, estuaries and river-coast processes. I have led a river plume modelling project and now I am focused on coupling a catchment model to a coastal model to study the influence of the Burdekin and Fitzroy Rivers on the Great Barrier Reef coast. I combine modelling with remote sensing and observational data to study coastal processes at different scales.

The main topic I am interested in is how the hydrological regime influences coastal dynamics in terms of circulation and sediment transport.
