Jordan is originally from New Zealand. He came to JCU to pursue both a Bachelor and a Masters of Science, and he has joined TropWATER’s Coastal and Estuarine Ecology team for a PhD. His Masters’ project focused on the thermal risks that fish encounter in a tropical urban estuary under the supervision of Dr Nathan Waltham. For his PhD, Jordan broadly focuses on assessing the ecosystem services of wetlands to better inform strategies for restoration. He is supervised by Dr Waltham and Professor Marcus Sheaves.
