My expertise lies in the areas of effluent reuse by land irrigation, soil and land resource mapping, environmental monitoring, salinity assessment and GIS systems. I am a Certified Professional Soil Scientist (CPSS), Registered Soil Practitioner (RSP) and member of the Australian Soil Science Society for over 20 years.

I have worked on various projects over the past 25 years including land resource assessments, the preparation of development applications, environmental impact statements and the compiling of environmental and irrigation management plans (EMP/IMPs) for a broad range of clients.

I have extensive experience in the design, assessment and management of effluent reuse systems (including MEDLI modelling). I have also conducted a substantial amount of environmental sampling (soil, effluent, groundwater etc.) and reporting for various industries according to standard protocols and licensing conditions.
