Dr Andrew Seen is a graduate of the University of Tasmania having undertaken a PhD in polymer supported catalysts. Current research interests include industrial, analytical and environmental chemistry projects. In addition to positions in academia, Dr Seen has also spent time working in industry.
Dr Seen's research interests are in the development and application of passive sampling devices for sampling contaminants in the environment, and understanding the sources, history and mobility of contaminants in the environment. Recent work includes establishing an historical profile of heavy metal pollution in the Tamar Valley through analysis of sediment cores from the Tamar Estuary, and studies on contaminant mobility at impacted sites in Antarctica. Research activities involve collaboration with industry and government organisations, including the Australian Antarctic Division, Analytical Services Tasmania, Nyrstar, Ecka Granules Australia and NRM North / TEER program.
