Biography

Kate joined CSIRO as an ecohydrologist in 2004 and is currently the Science Director of the Trusted Environmental and Geological Information (TEGI) Program. TEGI is a component of the broader $28.3 million Strategic Basin Plans program funded by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources. In this role, she leads a multi-disciplinary team (geology, hydrogeology, hydrology, water quality, ecology and impact analysis) that will provide independent, evidence-based information to support policy-makers, communities, industry and regulators to make decisions about future energy and mineral resource development.

Previous high profile roles include project leader for the $35.4 million Geological and Bioregional Assessment Program and for the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine subregion in the Bioregional Assessments Program. These roles use her multi-disciplinary knowledge to improve communication between disciplines and to bridge the science-policy divide. Kate has authored (or co-authored) 17 scientific journal publications, including a review of groundwater-surface water interactions in arid/semi-arid wetlands.
