Dr Xiaoying (Sha sha) Liu is an early-career environmental scientist with a research background in environmental chemistry and management responses to water pollution, land use change and climate change. Her major interests include cycling of nutrients and carbon in freshwater environments, integrating environmental and social research on improving the understanding of current and future states of inland wetlands, and management in relation to projected climate and land use changes on inland aquatic ecosystems.
She received her PhD in 2017 from Charles Sturt University, which focused on effects of land use change and climate change on biogeochemistry and ecology of inland ephemeral wetlands. She then has been involved in research projects which focus on the evaluation of ecosystem responses to environmental flows, algal blooms and hypoxic blackwater events.
