Aldrin joined Lincoln Agritech in November 2016 as a Catchment Hydrologist. He has ten years of professional experience in the fields of water and environmental science, engineering, and management; and has worked in various sectors including academia and consultancy for private and government entities. 

Aldrin obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the Philippines and his Master’s degree in Water Engineering and Management from Thailand. He has also received training in Germany on environmental modelling that included modelling of water and solute transport in the unsaturated zone. Aldrin is close to submitting his PhD thesis on denitrification in the subsurface environment of the Manawatu River catchment from Massey University.

With a mixed background in engineering and science, Aldrin is involved in a variety of Lincoln Agritech projects including the Ground Water Mitigations project.

His interests include:
• Groundwater
• Denitrification in the vadose and saturated zones
• Vulnerability assessment of freshwater resources
• Integrated catchment development and management
• Water supply systems and management
• Environmental and hydrological modelling
