Mike is a research assistant in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Melbourne. He completed his Honours Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology in 1992. After several years working in the field of instrumentation he returned to study in the almost entirely unrelated field of Theatre Lighting Design at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, gaining his Diploma in 1997. After ten years of professional theatre and film work it seemed an appropriate time to return to study for a second degree, this time at the University of Melbourne where he graduated with a double major in Botany and Environmental Science in 2009.

Mike is involved in Project P4 (Stream Ecology), within the Cities as Water Supply Catchments Program.
