Visiting Scholars

The Sustainable Engineering Group at Curtin has been visited by respected scholars from universities around the world over the years.

2020

  • Clelia Marti (United States)
    Clelia completed both her undergraduate and masters degrees in Water Resources Engineering at the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in Santa Fe, Argentina, and her PhD in Environmental Engineering at The University of Western Australia, Australia.
    Clelia has over 25 years of experience as a researcher, educator, and consultant gained through her previous and current academic positions in Argentina, Australia and the United States. She specializes in both environmental and water resources engineering applications in surface water systems (SWS) (i.e., rivers, lakes, reservoirs, wetlands, estuaries and coastal seas).
    Her research involves using high-level field data analysis, numerical modelling, and mathematical scaling to improve the scientific understanding of transport and mixing processes in SWS and the interplay between these processes and the biogeochemistry of the environment. This emphasis is motivated by her desire to develop sustainable engineering practices for the ecological outcome and the assimilative capacity of SWS.
    She is currently leading the development of a fully 3D coupled physical and biogeochemical model of Lake Champlain as part of the Vermont EPSCoR Basin Resilience to Extreme Events project at the University of Vermont.
