North QLD Regional Manager | Principal Hydrogeologist | Townsville
Dr Angela Bush
Angela specialises in integrated groundwater assessments, contaminant investigations, and geochemical analyses, with more than 15 years’ experience in consulting, research and education. One of her strengths is underpinning groundwater contamination assessments with an understanding of groundwater flow mechanisms. With detailed knowledge of groundwater systems in various settings, specifically focusing on fractured rock groundwater flow systems of North Queensland, she has supported clients across metalliferous and coal mines, industrial operations, unconventional gas projects, state and federal governments, and agriculture bodies.
Angela loves that at AGE, she gets to tackle complex problems together with her team, with each day offering different challenges from the last: “I love witnessing groundwater problems unravel through the exploration of multiple lines of evidence.”
In a previous life, Angela was a social scientist in the Mekong Basin. Nowadays, she lives by the Coral Sea and spends her spare time at the beach with her family, where her kids love spotting rays, reef sharks and turtles.
