Research Biography

Okke Batelaan is Strategic Professor in Hydro(geo)logy at Flinders University since 2012. He was Dean of the School of the Environment at Flinders from 2015-2017. Formerly he was for more than 20 years faculty member at the Free University Brussels and the KU Leuven, Belgium. Professor Batelaan has a broad experience in teaching groundwater hydrology, groundwater modelling, GIS and remote sensing for hydrological applications. He has extensive research experience and a publication record in shallow groundwater hydrology and modeling, recharge-discharge estimation and modeling, urban hydrology and distributed modelling, ecohydrology and impacts of landuse and climate change on groundwater systems. He coordinated and participated in a large number of projects in Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and Australia. He has lead a large project on the groundwater resources of the Adelaide plains and is currently involved in a project in the Northern Adelaide Plains, funded by the Goyder Institute. He is chief investigator in the ARC-Linkage project 'Cross-cultural management of freshwater on resource-constrained islands', which focusses on the water resources of Millingimbi island, NT. He is also partner in the ACIAR funded project 'Integrated water, soil and nutrient management for sustainable farming systems in South Central Coastal Vietnam and Australia'. He is editor-in-chief of Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies and associate editor of Journal of Hydrology.
