Aaron is the Biosis Melbourne Resource Group Manager and Senior Aquatic Ecologist with over eleven years experience in aquatic ecology and related fields.
His aquatic ecology career began in 2002, investigating the chemistry and macroinvertebrates of inland waters with La Trobe University, where he also completed his honours degree in aquatic ecology and environmental management.
Aaron continued his relationship with La Trobe embarking on a role as a Chemistry Lecturer and Freshwater Ecology Researcher working with key agencies in the area, such as the Murray Darling Freshwater Research Centre and the North East and Goulburn Broken CMAs.
Following a stint as an Environmental Chemist, Aaron joined Biosis in 2009 as an Aquatic Ecologist in the Sydney Office with expertise in the design, establishment and monitoring of aquatic environments. He has a specific interest in macroinvertebrates and AUSRIVAS methodology. A promotion to Consultant quickly followed with a subsequent move to management as the Sydney Resource Group Manager in January 2011 and Melbourne Resource Group Manager in October 2013.
Leading specialist teams throughout Victoria, Aaron’s positive communication style means trusted analysis and advice. His skills and interest in finances and people management have ensured that the Melbourne Office is successful.
Aaron’s out of the box and lateral thinking led to the development of the Aquatic Health Report Card on the Mangoola Coal Stream Health Monitoring Program for Xstrata Coal; a snap shot report that enables Biosis clients to identify quickly and easily areas that require investigation or mitigation measures. This has since been rolled out to other mine sites.
Biosis clients benefit from Aaron’s consultative, inclusive and collaborative approach.
