Dr Evan W. Christen
Born into a tea estate in Kenya, brought up in Zambia and educated in England as an Agricultural Engineer, I arrived in Australia to do a PhD with the CSIRO at the Griffith laboratory in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. For my PhD I researched cost effective methods for managing waterlogging and salinity in irrigated agriculture.
