MSc Scott joined Lincoln Agritech in late 2012 from the Otago Regional Council.

He is a hydrogeologist with an MSc from Victoria University, Wellington. Scott has extensive geological and hydrological experience, gained in his previous jobs with regional and district councils, in the mining industry, and as an independent consultant.

Scott will be contributing to our Groundwater Assimilative Capacity research, but also pursuing other research and consulting projects, which will be benefitting from Scott’s strong client relationship skills.

Scott’s areas of expertise include:

  • Conceptual and numerical modeling of groundwater systems
  • Groundwater quality investigations
  • Groundwater-surface water interaction
  • Geophysical groundwater investigations
