Alistar Robertson has taken up his position as dean of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Western Australia.
Professor Robertson has researched coastal ecology and river management in Australia for two decades.
During the past eight years, he has focussed on the restoration of rivers, including the Murray-Darling system, and currently has a five-year Australian Research Council discovery grant to test theoretical models of river function with colleagues in Victoria.
He has come to UWA from Charles Sturt University, where he was foundation chair and professor of environmental science, and later director of the Johnstone Centre of Research in Natural Resources and Society.
Professor Robertson is a former member of the Australian Research Committee’s Expert Advisory Committee in Biological Sciences and Biotechnology.
The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at UWA is the result of a university-wide restructure, and includes schools of earth and geographical sciences, plant biology, animal biology and agricultural and resource economics.
