Alice Harrison field surveyAlice is a Senior Project Engineer at the UNSW Water Research Laboratory. She has the unique qualifications of being a specialist water engineer with a background in economics, having completed both a Bachelor of Civil Engineer (Hons 1) and Bachelor of Commerce in 2015.

Alice is interested in estuary and coastal processes and works to bridge the gap between engineers, economists, and decision makers to improve coastal and estuary management. Her work is highly varied, from detailed hydrodynamic modelling to inform coastal floodplain and estuary management, to extensive fieldwork in both pristine and degraded environments, to completing cost-benefit analysis for large scale wetland restoration projects in NSW.

Alice is particularly interested in the growing and evolving field of environmental economics, with a focus towards ensuring that the true value of the environment is acknowledged and accounted for by decision makers.
