ARC DECRA Fellow, Australian National University

I am an alpine ecologist in the Research School of Biology at the ANU.

I make fundamental discoveries in plant ecology, with a focus on the effect of abiotic and biotic factors on plants, with the view to understanding and managing the effects of climate change in alpine ecosystems and mountain catchments.
