Julian has 23 years’ experience as a civil engineering consultant and hydrogeologist.  He has expertise in projects involving groundwater engineering, advanced groundwater modelling (both flow and transport), source protection zone assessments, advanced aquifer testing, the prediction of groundwater-surface water interactions, water resource studies, resource management and general environmental engineering. 


His ME research investigated and tested new techniques for analysing stream depletion effects from groundwater pumping.  He has developed many catchment-scale groundwater-surface water models and has used these models to investigate responses to inform policy decisions for multiple organisations.

Julian develops close working relationships with Regional and District councils through ongoing regional groundwater model developments, and he provides expert advice and review for other modellers.  He is an approved well head inspector for the Ashburton district and has conducted, directed and/or analysed numerous aquifer tests around New Zealand (particularly those with complex hydrogeological settings).
