An expert on freshwater, coastal and saline waterbodies, Fiona provides technical advice and review to our flora and fauna groups and works with the approvals and closure groups. She gives technical advice to clients and regulatory departments and helps clients with compliance or legal issues that require specialist advice.
Fiona and her team—Aquatic and Subterranean Ecosystems—are widely recognised as the foremost salt lake ecology specialists in Western Australia; Fiona has over 20 years’ experience in this discipline. They’ve developed innovative techniques for assessing these waterbodies in the absence of water, the lakes being dry for most of the year. They’ve also taken on aquatic ecology projects across the resource, private and academic sectors throughout Asia Pacific, in turn broadening Fiona’s access to local and global colleagues and specialists.
Outside of work Fiona enjoys spending time with family and she’s a mad fan of Australian football team the West Coast Eagles.
