Melinda Waterman

Associate Lecturer, University of Wollongong

I am an early career biotechnologist with experience in plant secondary metabolites, carbon isotopes and determining the health of plants. I am interested in the protective mechanisms employed by plants, in particular desiccation tolerant mosses, and how they cope in different stressful situations, e.g. UV radiation, water stress and high light.
