Research Themes

Andrew's research interests include industrial, analytical and environmental chemistry projects. His main areas of interest 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 historical profiles of heavy metal pollution in the Derwent and Tamar estuaries through analysis of sediment cores, and development of passive samplers for metals and herbicides. Research activities involve collaboration with industry and government organisations, including Analytical Services Tasmania and NRM North / TEER program.

Description
This project (TEMPEST) will provide teachers of mathematics K-12 including in the VET sector with: a collaboratively developed national framework for the creation, implementation, and evaluation of quality professional learning (PL); and quality PL resources addressing identified needs particularly related to the applications of mathematics in science, ICT (particularly informatics) and engineering (STEM disciplines).

Launceston Flood Authority Dredge Spoil Investigations (2013)$9,000
Description
This project aims to assess the effectiveness of liming and cultivation of dredged material as a means for neutralisation of acid sulfate soil acidity and immobilisation of metal contaminants. It is proposed that dewatered sediment be obtained from a section of the West Tamar dewatering ponds for laboratory ripening trials. Acid sulfate soil (ASS) and metal analyses (nitric acid extracted) will be undertaken on dewatered sediments prior to liming, with the ASS analyses determining the liming rates. Both surface sediment and sediment from near the bottom of the dewatering ponds (or as deep as can be obtained) will be sampled to provide sediments of different oxidation states. Laboratory ripening studies will consist of the addition of lime to a mass of dewatered sediment that is then maintained in a plastic tub over 8-10 weeks with weekly cultivation of the dewatered sediments. Control experiments (i.e. dewatered sediments without lime added) will also be run in parallel. pH, ORP (oxidation-reduction potential) and moisture content will be monitored weekly, whilst porewater metal concentrations will be monitored fortnightly. At the completion of the laboratory ripening studies (as determined by pH measurements and expected to be approximately after 8-10 weeks) pH, ORP, moisture content and porewater metal concentrations will be measured, along with ASS analyses. Resuspension tests will also be undertaken on the control and limed dewatered sediments to provide a more timely indication of the effectiveness of liming for neutralising generated acidity. These tests will involve the daily measurement of pH, ORP and dissolved metal concentrations over 5-10 days.
