WaterRA student Florence Choo, from the University of New South Wales, won the National Student Water Prize at this year's Australian Water Awards at OzWater19.

Florence won the award for her research Real-time Monitoring of Cyanobacteria: Validation of Fluorometers as a Tool for Optimising Treatment Processes. Florence is a final year engineering PhD student at UNSW and was a visiting research student at SA Water.

"Florence joined WaterRA in 2016 following the award of a WaterRA PhD scholarship and the Nancy Millis Memorial PhD Award," WaterRA Research Capability Manager, Carolyn Bellamy, said. "Florence’s supervisor is Dr Rita Henderson at UNSW and Florence has consistently demonstrated commitment and a passion for science. This is a great reward for all her hard work."

Florence's work focuses on monitoring cyanobacteria in real-time for drinking water processes.
