Water experts recognised through promotion

UNSW-GWI congratulates six members who will soon be promoted to Associate Professor, reflecting not only the breadth but the calibre of water expertise on offer at UNSW.

The six water experts who received news of their upcoming promotion were Dr Martin Andersen, Dr Rita Henderson, Dr Adriana Verges, Dr Lucy Marshall, Dr John Triantafilis and Dr Suhelen Egan, representing the Schools of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences.

All six water experts have different specific areas of expertise, extending to groundwater, water quality and treatment, modelling, marine ecology, soil science and microbiology.

In order to be promoted, applicants must have demonstrated sustained excellence in research, education, social engagement, global impact and leadership.

UNSW Sydney Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof Ana Deletic, said UNSW Sydney’s water expertise was going from strength to strength.

“The promotion of this cohort of emerging research leaders in water-related disciplines across the faculties of science and engineering will cement UNSW Sydney’s place in the top ten universities for water,” said Prof Deletic.

The new roles will be effective from 1 January 2018.
