Holger has years of professional engineering experience in the public and private sectors, having worked at Kinhill Engineers, the Australian Water Quality Centre and as an Australian Volunteer Abroad with the Samoa Water Authority. His primary research interest is the utilisation of examples from nature for solving environmental and water engineering problems. This involved the development of ANN (artificial neural networks) that produced improved forecasts of concentrations of salinity and blue-green algae in the River Murray.

In 2007 he became Deputy Head of the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering. He was promoted to Professor in 2008.
