Research Fellow, Western Sydney University

I am an ecologist and ARC DECRA fellow at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, Western Sydney University. I am interested in ecological interactions, particularly those that occur in the soil. My research focuses on the ecology of mycorrhizal fungi and their effects on plants and their defences against herbivores.
