Dr Jodie Pritchard

Research Scientist


Dr Jodie L Pritchard is a hydrogeologist with experience in soil science, isotope geochemistry, GIS and spatial analysis, and project management. She has applied her experience to understand surface water – groundwater interactions, salt accumulation and mobilisation processes, groundwater dependent ecosystems and has undertaken environmental response modelling to understand the potential impacts of modified watering regimes on groundwater dependent terrestrial vegetation. Her research aims to identify the occurrence of groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDEs) and to understand the surface water and groundwater interactions that support inland and coastal GDE communities.
