Professor Nick Bond - Director


Professor Nick Bond, newly appointed Director of The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre. Previously a Principal Research Fellow with the Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University and adjunct Senior Research Fellow with the University of Melbourne. Nick has more than 20 years’ experience working on freshwater ecosystems. His primary research interests are in the effects of flow variability on stream biota and ecological processes, and integrating this knowledge into catchment management and water planning to achieve conservation and restoration outcomes. Much of his work examines the role of floods and droughts in driving population and ecosystem processes, and combines both empirical field studies with quantitative modelling approaches. He has extensive experience working with quantitative and semi-quantitative methods in ecological modelling and risk assessment.  He has extensive experience working on river management and environmental flow issues in Australia and internationally. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed papers and numerous peer reviewed technical reports. His research focus is supported by active engagement with regional, national and international water and natural resource management agencies.
