Johana Ataupah

UNSW | Student

Johana has a master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from UNSW Sydney. During her degree, she focussed on estuaries and climate change with her thesis titled “Predicting the impacts of climate change on hydrodynamics and salinity in estuaries”.

Specifically, Johana’s research thesis focused on using numerical modelling to identify the potential of saltwater intrusion as the response to the changing river flow and sea level rise in the Hunter River estuary. This research contributes to recommendations for policymakers who are dealing with climate change threats to estuaries.
