Heather is an ecologist who has been studying Australia’s beautiful inland floodplains and wetlands for 20 years. She is a Senior Research Scientist at the CSIRO, where she has worked for 15 years. Heather is fascinated by the plants, birds and other animals that depend on wetlands and her research is helping to inform how our management of water can better support their needs. Heather is particularly interested in waterbirds and since 2016 she and her colleagues have been using GPS satellite transmitters to track the movements of waterbirds in and around the Murray-Darling Basin, which has been eye-opening. Heather leads the CEWO Flow Monitoring, Evaluation and Research Program’s ‘Diversity Theme’.
