Dr Jen A. Middleton



Research Gate | ORCID ID:0000-0002-6993-9804


Jen completed a Bachelor of Science and honours degree in Zoology at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in 2015 and her PhD at UWA in urban freshwater ecosystems at the start of 2021.

Jen’s research is at the cutting edge of our current scientific understanding of aquatic function, linking macro-scale management of vegetation and water quality with micro-scale processes. Through her work, Jen hopes to improve the management of freshwater and estuarine systems by combining ecological, biogeochemical and molecular microbial techniques.

Jen also studied a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts and Design at Curtin University, which has enabled her to master graphic design and illustration, which she combines with her scientific knowledge to make compelling and concise graphics.

Key Research Areas

  • Biogeochemical processes in freshwater and riparian ecosystems
  • Microbial ecology of natural systems including; freshwater biofilms, soils, plant-microbe interactions
  • Investigation of insect protein in the circular economy
  • Urban stream ecology and restoration
