Associate Professor Deniz Özkundakci

Toihuarewa Waimāori - Chair in Lake and Freshwater Science

My current research involves generating environmental models of lake ecosystems In New Zealand. The purpose of these models are to create automated tools for councils and iwi to investigate long-term changes to lake water quality.
