Flinders Water

Make every drop count

“Doing my PhD in hydrogeology at Flinders University is rewarding. I research groundwater flow in the vicinity of large mines and can see how my research directly impacts the community. With a field site in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia, I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some places I would never otherwise see.

Groundwater studies combine aspects of many other sciences, including environmental sciences, geology, mathematics, chemistry and computer science, which means that I’m always learning new things, trying new approaches and never getting bored.”
