Tropical Leaves


I'm a plant ecologist that studies how plants adapt their physiology and morphology in response to environmental stressors, including drought, deep shade, and low soil fertility.  I use a combination of experiments, fieldwork, and modelling (population and statistical models). 


Currently, I investigate the optimization of photosynthesis in response to soil fertility.  In particular, I am interested in the dual roles of soil nutrients and moisture availability in regulating photosynthesis in Australian plants.
