Professor David Hamilton

David Hamilton

Chief Science Officer

David Hamilton is the Chief Science Officer of the Outcome Based Investment in Lake Biodiversity Restoration. He coordinates the research of the two intermediate outcomes in Harmful Algal Bloom Management (IO1) and Pest Fish Control (IO2). He also provides the science conduit for interactions with end users and managers through communications with the Research Manager of the Outcome Based Investment and the OBI’s external committees” the Governance Group, the External Science Review Committee and the End User Advisory Group.

David has research interests in lake management generally, and specifically in how algal blooms form, how nutrients are transformed and how models can be used for prediction and management of lake ecosystems. Examples of publications on these topics are provided with applications to case studies on the Swan River, New Zealand lakes, Lake Kinneret in Israel and several other sites. David is an Associate Editor of Hydrobiologia, a member of the Editorial Advisory Committee of Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research, and a member of the Consulting Editorial Board of Aquatic Ecology.

David's research expertise in lake and estuary management has been used in many practical situations; through expert advice to the Department of Environmental Protection (Western Australia), the Southern Nevada Water Board (Las Vegas), Environment Bay of Plenty, Environment Waikato, Hamilton City Council, Sydney Water and many other organisations.
