Dr. Andrew Dansie

Senior Lecturer, Humanitarian Engineering Academic Lead

Andrew has 15 years of experience in the water sector spanning multilateral organisations, the private sector, and tertiary institutions.

Andrew is a Senior Lecturer at UNSW and am ecstatic to be operating at the intersect of research and sustainable development. In his time as a Research Fellow with the United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health, he worked on water and development projects across six continents. As Project Director of a four-year global assessment of US$7 billion of transboundary water projects, he coordinated over 100 scientists and stakeholders to better understand the scientific needs for managing the world’s rivers, lakes, aquifers, coastal and ocean environments.

Prior to joining UNSW, he completed his Doctorate at the University of Oxford School of Geography and the Environment as a Clarendon Scholar – where his biogeochemical and geomorphological research identified arid river valleys as sources of nutrient-rich dust that played a not-yet recognised fertilisation role in some of the planet’s most productive marine environments.
