Dr Vanessa Wong

  • My research explores the spatial and temporal interactions between soils, sediments and water at a range of scales. I am interested in the role of soil-surface water-shallow groundwater processes  ranging from the micron scale to the landscape scale in landscape function. I seek to understand how these biogeochemical processes occur in a range of environments, focusing most recently on both inland and coastal floodplain environments. This has allowed me to work closely with industry, government organisations (local, state and federal) and catchment management authorities to develop and apply findings from my research to improve land and water management strategies.
