Dr Juliette Woods is the Principal Groundwater Modeller at the SA Department for Environment and Water and is a former Research Fellow at Flinders. She has worked in groundwater modelling in academia, government and industry since 1996. She was awarded a PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Adelaide in 2004 on the simulation of variable-density flow and solute transport, examining the numerical accuracy of different solution methods and simulating saline lakes. She was a research fellow at the Institute of Computational Engineering and Sciences at the University of Texas, Austin from 2001 to 2003, and later became Principal Groundwater Modeller at SA consulting company Australian Water Environments (now Water Technology). She specialises in the salinity in the lower River Murray, but also works on regional-scale water resource models, surface-groundwater interaction and climate change impact studies. She enjoys crocheting extinct megafauna and hyperbolic surfaces.
Dr Woods has given hydrogeological talks to a wide variety of audiences, including the Australian Federation of University Women, politics students, and science fiction convention attendees.
She has been an invited or plenary speaker for a number of conferences aimed at early career mathematicians. Her work has featured posters for high school students for the Mathematical Association of South Australia and for the International Women in Mathematics Day.
