Project – Hydrogeologist | Newcastle
Walter has several years’ experience as a hydrogeologist and groundwater modeller, joining AGE in 2019. Initially focused on field geology and hydrogeology, his well-rounded experience has seen him transition to a more modelling and approvals focused role. Walter specialises in integrated groundwater assessments and has a great appreciation for how accurate field data acquisition informs powerful conceptual and numerical models. He has completed numerical groundwater modelling for various large-scale coal and metalliferous projects, and is familiar with the myriad technical and legislative requirements that need to be met in assessment.
Walter loves collaborating with and learning from other professional scientists and engineers at AGE. “The dynamic nature of our projects often requires working with the wider team, so you’re constantly learning.”
Growing up in a Spanish-speaking household and with dual citizenship between Australia and Colombia, Walter has a passion for travelling and learning about new places. He has particularly relished trips to outback Australia in recent years.
