Tegan is a PhD candidate at Charles Darwin University within the College of Engineering IT and Environment in the field of wetland ecology. Her current research is on the effects of sea level rise and saltwater intrusion within freshwater coastal wetlands, and the implications to the ecology, food webs, and community structure within these ecosystems in northern Australia. Prior to her PhD Tegan completed her Hons. degree in Perth, Western Australia, on the ecological communities in urban natural and anthropogenic wetlands. Having grown up in northern Western Australia, Tegan’s area of interest is focused on the ecological communities of freshwater wetlands in northern Australia, including phytoplankton, benthic algae, macrophytes, zooplankton, macroinvertebrates, and herbivorous/omnivorous fish.
