Overview


Dr Kerrylee Rogers is an Associate Professor in the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences and GeoQuest Research Centre at the University of Wollongong. She is the Environmental Science Academic Program Director and  Deputy Leader of the Sustaining Coastal and Marine Zones Theme of the interdisciplinary Global Challenges Program at the University of Wollongong. Dr Rogers research focusses on coastal and aquatic ecosystem vulnerability to climate change, adaptations to climate change, and opportunities for mitigating climate change through improving restoration, conservation and management of coastal and aquatic ecosystems. She is particularly concerned about the resilience of coastal wetlands to sea-level rise and anthropogenic pressures. In addition to undertaking her own research and supervising her students, Dr Rogers is a proud Mum to two rapidly growing boys, who she hopes is as passionate about environmental sustainability as she is.

Research Overview


  • Response of coastal landscapes and ecosystems to climate change. Particular research interest is given to the response of coastal wetlands to climate change and their role in carbon sequestration. Research focussed on analyses of sedimentation and the elevation response coastal shorelines, sediment budgets, and carbon store and sources. Techniques employed include surface elevation tables, Geographic Information Systems and isotopic techniques.
