Biography

Keirnan Fowler is a hydrologist with 11 years’ experience across industry and academia. He began his career as a consulting engineering for six years with Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM, now Jacobs), working for a variety of government and industry clients on projects covering water resources management, catchment modelling and flood risk. During 2014-2017 Keirnan undertook a PhD at the University of Melbourne, aiming to improve rainfall-runoff modelling under changing climatic conditions. Keirnan continues this research in his current role as a research fellow with the Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources Group, Department of Infrastructure Engineering.
