Judith has seventeen years of experience as an air quality consultant. She joined Holmes Air Sciences (now Pacific Environment) in 2002 and has extensive experience in emission inventory development, analysis of air pollutant and meteorological monitoring data, and dispersion modelling (AUSPLUME, ISC, CALPUFF, CALMET and TAPM).
Judith has significant experience in the preparation of emission inventories for use in air quality impact assessments for the extraction industry and has been extensively involved in the provision of advice on the practicality of dust abatement measures for coal mines in the Hunter Valley, including ongoing community consultation.
Between 2011 and 2014 Judith was Project Manager for an Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) grant (C20023) which introduced to Australia the concept of mobile sampling. The mobile sampling device – ReX (Road Emissions eXpert) – can be used to measure dust emissions in real time from an unsealed road surface to identify hot-spots and determine control efficiency. Judith’s work with ReX was recently featured in the ACARP 2015 Annual Report in an article showing how the implementation of ReX has benefited the coal-mining industry.
Judith is an active member of the US Centre for Study Open Source Emissions (CSOSE). CSOSE was established in mid-2010 with the primary objective to advance the standardisation of open source test methods to the level of ducted source test methods. She is a member of the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ), a member of the NSW CASANZ Branch Committee and was Co-Chair for the bi-annual CASANZ conference held in Sydney in September 2013.
Aside from solving air quality issues, Judith is a regular yoga practitioner and believes that the use of aromatherapy can cure all the worlds ills.
