Nena has a background in both civil engineering and freshwater ecosystem management. Nena completed a BSc (Engineering) with an honours year focussing on hydrology, hydraulics and sediment dynamics. The key focus of Nena's MSc was developing optimisation-based methods to guide river basin restoration. Nena joined CWiMI in 2014 to work on a number of hydrogeology and water resource management projects, located both in Australia and abroad. Previous research work has investigated application of remote sensing techniques in quantifying flood plain hydrology and freshwater ecosystem interactions and responses in semi-arid environments. Nena also has consultancy experience in civil engineering design.
