Alexander Schmidt-Lebuhn

Research Scientist, CSIRO

Alexander's research interests include the systematics and evolution of flowering plants, in particular of Asteraceae (daisy family), biogeography, user-friendly species identification tools including through the application of computer vision, and polyploidy. He uses DNA sequence data to resolve phylogenetic relationships and understand the evolution of native Australian plants, and flow cytometry and traditional chromosome counts to study genome duplication (polyploidy) in native Australian plants.
