Senior Principal Research Scientist, CSIRO

Dr Suzanne Prober is a Senior Principal Research Scientist with CSIRO Land and Water in Perth, Western Australia. Her research is centred on managing and restoring the natural diversity, ecosystem function, and resilience of vegetation communities, with a long-standing interest in balancing production, cultural and economic values with nature conservation, particularly in temperate eucalypt woodlands. Core research areas include management of fire, exotic invasions, and soil ecological processes in interaction with land use, and helping Aboriginal people document their ecological knowledge and aspirations to help them re-engage in natural resource management. Facilitating adaptation of nature conservation to climate change, underpinned by principles reflecting the values of nature to people, is an increasingly pressing focus.
