Misko Ivezich

Misko is an environmental engineer with core interests and skills in the complex interactions between hydrology, hydraulics and fluvial geomorphology. Misko has strong geomorphic field assessment skills having inspected hundreds of waterways across eastern Australia. In addition he is highly proficient in terrain, hydrologic and hydraulic modelling. The combination of his on ground experience and modelling expertise means he has an innate ability to understand how changes in processes, from the local scale to the catchment scale, will impact the condition and trajectory of rivers. Following widespread flooding in both south-east Queensland and north-east Victoria in recent years Misko has worked on a range of projects assessing the causes of channel change. Much of this work has focused on assessing the roles previous restoration works and riparian vegetation played in exacerbating or limiting stream stability. Consequently, as a river restoration designer he couples analytical engineering theory with his experiences of what has previously worked to increase stream stability.
