My research examines the mechanisms used by plants to grow and survive in a changing environment, and applies this understanding to help improve the sustainability and resilience of natural and agricultural systems. I have a particular interest in the response of plants to abiotic factors such as temperature, nutrients and water stress.
- • Climate smart crops- using modelling and phenotyping to develop crops that are resilient to heat and drought
- • Anthurium- Selection of Anthurium germplasm for long vase life
- • Improving Forest and Protected Area Management- using ecophysiology methods to improve the management and restoration of protected areas in the face of Climate Change
