Farewell Professor Lucy Marshall
Professor Lucy Marshall is departing from UNSW to take up a new position as Executive Dean for Science and Engineering at Macquarie University.
Lucy has been a champion for the Global Water Institute since the beginning, serving on our leadership team and providing extensive support for our initiatives.
Lucy is a well respected engineer, hydrologist, academic, leader and mentor, Throughout her time at UNSW and in her most recent roles as Associate Dean (Research) and Director of the UNSW Water Research Centre (WRC), Lucy helped us to forge lasting connections both inside and outside of the university.
Head of the UNSW School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Nasser Khalili said, "While this is a major loss for the School and WRC, it is an exceptional opportunity for Lucy, and we wish her all the very best in this very exciting role at Macquarie."
Incoming WRC Director Denis O'Carroll echoed these sentiments, saying, "We’d like to express our very sincere and deep gratitude to Lucy Marshall. She has worked tirelessly to lead, support and promote the WRC since returning to UNSW over a decade ago. This includes her ground breaking hydrology research, serving as the editor of top international journals as well as leading WRC through COVID and staff redundancies. On a personal level Lucy has provided significant support and mentorship. I know that many of you have been similarly fortunate. We very much look forward to continued collaborations with Lucy and congratulate her on being Executive Dean at Macquarie University."
The UNSW water community wishes Lucy all the best and we look forward to the new collaborative water opportunities that may unfold between our two institutions
