Who am I?

Dr Phil Clunies-Ross

I am an environmental scientist, specializing in water resources management and environmental reporting. I relish the power of data and effective science communication to inform and inspire positive environmental stewardship.

I have a diversity in experience in research, technical writing and applied environmental monitoring. Recently, I have focussed my efforts in the development of digital environmental reporting products. I believe these tools can be effectively deployed to engage stakeholders and inform decision-making.

I have worked in a variety of scientific and digital-development roles. I have undergraduate level degrees in biomedical science and environmental science, as well as a PhD in water resources management. I've studied microplastic pollution on New Zealand's coastlines, as well glacial-fed rivers in both New Zealand and Antarctica. I also drafted the national "Plastics in the Environment" report with the Royal Society in 2019.

My scientific experience is supported by time in have spent in digital consulting and in the development of environmental reporting products . I have completed certifications in front-end and backend development, mostly in Python, SQL and Javascript.

Outside of work, I spend most of my time in the outdoors mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, surfing, skiing and hiking in the beautiful playground that is Aotearoa.
