Reuben Ferguson possesses a diverse mix of environmental science and water engineering experience. His work focuses on applying principles of water sensitive design to reduce the impacts of urban development on receiving environments.

Reuben has a BSc (Hons) in Ecology from Victoria University and a Master of Engineering Science in Water Resources from the University of New South Wales.  His broad academic background provides him with a unique understanding of both the ecological and hydraulic functions of engineered systems, and their interface with the natural environment.

Reuben is a keen cyclist, using a bicycle as his primary means of urban transport as well as for exploring further afield. He recently completed a 13-month ride between England and New Zealand, and has previously cycled across Canada.
