Guest Speaker

Harriet Whiley, Senior Lecturer at Flinders University, PhD Environmental Microbiology


Topic - Water and Health

Water is a huge part of our day-to-day lives, and ensuring the water we come into contact with is safe and free from pathogens is crucial in keeping the community safe and healthy.

Harriet will be sharing her contributions to public health by speaking with us about her water quality research, specifically her work on controlling opportunistic premise plumbing pathogens, and water as a source of antimicrobial resistant healthcare infections.


Come and learn more about this interesting realm of research with Harriet, and understand some of the work that goes on to ensure public safety with regard to water!



Harriet is a senior lecturer in Environmental Health at Flinders University. She has a PhD in Environmental Microbiology and has received numerous awards for excellence throughout her University career.

Harriet’s main areas of research centre around water quality and food safety, where her water quality research is focussed on the presence of pathogens in potable and reuse water.  Her work seeks to keep the public safe by informing processes to adapt to and control the ever-evolving microbes that share the environment we live in.
