Kathy has worked at Melbourne Water for 20-years, initially in the drinking water planning and research areas and now has an additional focus on receiving water modelling. She completed her PhD in 2009, which investigated and quantified the effectiveness of buffer strips for the protection of drinking water quality. This was followed by a secondment to a modelling consultancy where she evaluated different hydrodynamic water quality receiving models. Her current role has an emphasis on hydrodynamic, hydrologic and water quality modelling in various environments including estuaries, bays, catchments and reservoirs. Kathy has presented at many international conferences and published numerous articles in international peer reviewed journals.
