Personal profile

Research interests

Professor Jenny Davis is an environmental scientist in the College of Engineering, IT and Environment, specialising in freshwater ecology. She is interested in answering the fundamental question of how much water does the environment need?  Her current research focuses on groundwater-dependent waterbodies in arid, semi-arid and wet/dry tropical regions and the processes that support the persistence of aquatic refugia and biodiversity hotspots. Jenny received the Murdoch University Vice-Chancellors Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Supervision in 2004 and the Australian Society for Limnology (ASL) Medal in 2006. She has published over 200 works (including peer-reviewed papers and technical reports).
