Dr Jarrod Trevathan is an expert in affordable environmental monitoring technologies and ecommerce security and fraud algorithms. His current particular area is cost-effective technologies for water quality assessment and flood monitoring. Dr Trevathan is leading industry and community collaborative projects that seek to integrate technology, social enterprise and community engagement to improve environmental outcomes. This is particularly the case with water resource monitoring and disaster management (for which he has won significant community awards and prestigious Australian Research Council (ARC) funding). Dr Trevathan is soliciting students at all year levels (3rd year, Honours, Masters, PhD, Post Grad) who have skills in programing, electronics, statistics and physics. Students must be willing to have a go at real-world problems in agriculture and water quality. As such, you need to perform at an industry level and deliver tangible commercial outcomes. That being said, you will be provided with the environment you need to help you achieve these goals.
