Margot is a Project Engineer at the UNSW Water Research Laboratory. She completed a Bachelor of Science in Hydrologic Sciences and Policy at the University of California Santa Barbara in 2020, and a Masters of Water Engineering at UNSW in 2022.

This has given her a strong background in ecology and environmental processes, in addition to technical engineering skills. As part of her studies she completed a Master’s thesis on hydrologic modelling of upland swamps and the impact of longwall mining.

Margot now works primarily in numerical modelling using the RMA modelling suite, working on projects such as modelling pollutant transport in 11 NSW estuaries, and modelling erosion in the Lake Illawarra Entrance channel. She has also worked in Australian Carbon Markets and has remote sensing and drone experience.
