Expert Commentary From Waikato University

If you're writing a story on algal blooms you'd want to talk to Waikato University's Professor David Hamilton. If it's a piece on population and social trends you'd contact demographer Prof Ian Pool. Prof Mike Pratt would be the visionary you need in sustainable business.

These are just a few examples of the top commentators available in Waikato University's Experts File, now available online at
