I am undertaking my final undergraduate year thesis project, on the predicted effects of sea level rise on tidal distortion in a mesotidal shallow estuary. My study area is the Tamar River estuary in northern Tasmania. I am interested in geomorphology and mathematical modelling, and I hope to improve future outcomes for wetland ecosystems management and coastal planning.
