Profile

I am a Research Scientist in the Landscape Conservation Program, currently conducting studies on jarrah forest hydrology and water relations of Eucalyptus globulus (blue-gum).

Previously I have given technical support to research on the environmental factors affecting the development of disease by Phytophthora cinnamomi in the jarrah forest (jarrah dieback), and on the water relations of Eucalyptus globulus (blue-gum) and Pinus radiata and P. pinaster plantations.


Expertise

  • Use of data loggers for environmental monitoring
