Ecological impacts of low flows
Impacts of development on freshwater ecology
After completing his PhD in late 2007, Alex was self-employed in the North Island undertaking a range of freshwater consultancy work before leaping at the opportunity to move to Christchurch. Five years later, he has returned to the lower North Island, to establish EOS Ecology’s Palmerston North office.
Alex's role at EOS encompasses a wide range of activities from implementing and managing projects through to meeting with clients, and he is excited to return to the region where he spent his university years.
“I’ve enjoying the variety within my role in Christchurch and I'm now looking forward to the new challenge of being at the forefront of EOS Ecology’s physical presence outside the 'mainland'.
I’m thrilled EOS Ecology has faith in my abilities to take on this new position and I’m excited about the future.”
Alex once Canadian canoed 150 km down the Whanganui River. At the start of the trip, simply steering the canoe was a major challenge, but by day five Alex could gracefully (albeit somewhat anxiously) negotiate the most demanding rapids.
