Research Overview


  • I am a plant ecophysiologist and climate change biologist. My research examines how plants respond to climate change with an integrated systems approach using molecular to ecological techniques. Throughout my career I have pioneered novel techniques to investigate metabolic processes in vivo and have expertise in plant nitrogen metabolism, respiration, photosynthesis and photoprotective mechanisms (both for visible and UV radiation). I am currently investigating novel methodologies for measuring canopy productivity from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) using chlorophyll fluorescence and spectroscopic techniques.
