Shiv Umapathi

Shiv is a multidisciplinary environmental/water engineer and consultant, with extensive experience working in private, government and academic sectors including national science/research agencies. Shiv’s expertise lies in water quality, in both catchments and estuaries, primarily focusing on wetland rehabilitation, construction and operation as a means of mitigating nutrient and pollutant loads into receiving environments. Shiv’s work is holistic, incorporating multiple facets of engineering to apply nature-based solutions to benefit real world environmental issues through knowledge- and modelling-based approaches. Shiv has experience in environmental and developmental approvals processes and in managing long and short-term projects, of varying levels of complexity and budgets. She provides expert advice with a practical and sensible approach to environmental management and monitoring (of water quality, discharge, soils, wetlands, greenhouse gas emissions and so on) both within the company and to external clients alike. Shiv also enjoys mentoring and training young engineers and scientists to help adopt and apply real world skills in order to truly understand the application and significance of data in hydrodynamic, hydraulic and water balance modelling.
