Congratulations Professor William Glamore!
Congratulations to WRC’s Will Glamore on his so well-deserved promotion to UNSW Professor!
As Head of School Scientia & PSM Professor Nasser Khalili announced, ‘This is a wonderful achievement and an acknowledgement and recognition of Will’s outstanding contributions to research, education, leadership and engagement in his field.’
For more than twenty years Professor Glamore has led research programs in large-scale blue ecosystem restoration, estuarine and wetland hydrodynamics, emerging contaminants (including PFAS), climate change impacts, and waterway and port management.
He currently leads the Eco-Engineering Research Group at the School’s Water Research Laboratory. The group have been very successful in developing practical solutions for the restoration and functional recovery of damaged, contaminated or endangered ecosystems, and have secured over $7.5 million dollars in research funding. Partners include government, industry and other universities with major projects involving tidal and riverine wetlands, estuaries and inland waterways.
The group’s efforts have received multiple awards including Engineers Australia's Excellence Award, Natural Heritage Trust Award for Sustainability, NSW Green Globe Award, PIANC International Working with Nature Certification, and NSW Coastal Conferences Innovation Award.
Will has always had extensive engagement with industry and government, and was a co-author of the Clean Energy Regulator's Blue Carbon Method. He has served as Chair of NSW Water Working Group for PFAS Contamination, Chair of PIANC Australia & New Zealand (World Association for Waterborne Transport), Inaugural member of the NSW Coastal Council, a member of NSW Marine Estate Expert Knowledge Panel, and Ministerial appointed Chair of Tuggerah Lakes Expert Panel. Will is also a member of the Sydney Institute of Marine Science’s Scientific Advisory Committee, and in 2022 was their CEO and Director (interim).
Warm congratulations to Professor Glamore from all his colleagues and friends at WRL, UNSW Water Research Centre, and the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering. Here’s to more restoration, regeneration and eco-recovery!
