Research Focus

Carbon cycle of Mountain Ash forests

Current Research

Studying the effect of climate change and atmospheric CO2 concentration increase on the carbon cycle of Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) forests employing field data collection and ecological simulation models.

Past Research

In the past, my research focused on many aspects of physical geography, environmental science and management. Examples of past research has ranged from looking at the geology and sedimentology of acid sulfate soils in northern NSW for my undergraduate thesis work, right through to conducting qualitative studies on the life cycle analysis of the dairy industry and its environmental management. Other projects have involved looking at the environmental impacts of contaminated sites, such as decommissioned service station sites in urban areas.
