As a researcher, with a background in chemical engineering and biotechnology, I get excited about all applications of science.
I completed my PhD at Monash University, where I investigated the impact of high CO2 concentrations on algal growth and photosynthesis.
After my PhD I was part of a group exploring physiological changes that occurred in the groundbreaking, long-term experimental evolution project, started by Richard Lenski 30 years ago!
I currently work as a research fellow at The University of Adelaide, exploring how cultivating plants under grapevines might be used to improve yield and soil quality. We're developing a better way of managing vineyards that reduces herbicide use, while improving profitability.
Into the future I hope to continue developing sustainable agricultural practices, with the goal of having large, real world impacts.
