Mr Robert Andrew


Robert (Robbie) Andrew is currently a PhD student in the School of the Environment at the Flinders University of South Australia. His research focuses on the response of deep confined aquifers to hydrological loading and unloading on the surface, such as rainfall. Mechanical loading is a relatively new concept and often goes unnoticed or is mistaken for recharge. When Robbie first learned about it, he immediately knew that it is what he wanted to study for a PhD.

In 2012, Robbie received first class honours in a Bachelor of Science (Environmental Science). He used thermal measurements to examine changes in soil moisture. Robbie is a teaching assistant and tutor at Flinders University in the Surface Water Hydrology topic and is often asked to demonstrate in other undergraduate earth science topics. He has also been involved with work on the Adelaide Urban Heat Island project.
