Andrew Barry is an associate professor in hydrology in the Department of Enviornmental Engineering and Leader of the Hydrology group at the Centre for Water Research at the Univeristy of Western Australia. His research areas are mathematical models of hydrological and vadose zone processes and applied mathematical methods. He is currently researching water infiltration and its relationship with non-linear solute adsorption processes as well as the effect of subsurface heterogenity on chemical transport. Other research interests include contaminant sorption in soil profiles, unsaturated flow, transport of organic liquids, saltwater intrusion and centrifugal modelling of solute transport processes. He has published over 80 refereed technical papers.

Andrew is a member of the American Geophysical Union and the International Soil Science Society.
