Yoel is PhD Candidate from the UNSW School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (BEES) working on the UNSW Tube Fishway project, under the supervision of Professor Iain M. Suthers, Associate Professor Stefan Felder and Professor Richard Kingsford.

Yoel’s research centres on establishing a framework for developing and evaluating the performance of alternative fishway designs in Australia, with focus on incorporating insights on fish behaviour and the relationship to hydraulics into fishway bioengineering.

The objective of this research will be to utilise information on swimming performance to produce a cost-effective design that is efficient at aiding the passage of native fish communities through small- and medium-sized instream barriers.

Supervisors: Prof Iain M. Suthers, A/Prof Stefan Felder and Prof Richard Kingsford.
