DR Anna Lintern




  • Dr Anna Lintern is a Honorary Research Fellow in the Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources Group in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering. She received her PhD in Civil Engineering from Monash University in 2016 and her Bachelor of Engineering(Civil Engineering) and Bachelor of Arts (History and Japanese) from Monash University in 2012.

    Her current research focuses on the development of a statistical model of surface water quality (sediments and nutrients), and the identification of the key spatial drivers of water quality. She is also interested in the use of quaternary science for the management of the water quality of aquatic environments, and for the identification of reference conditions of aquatic systems.
