Senior Principal Research Scientist/Professor
Genetic and environment effects on growth of field crops, particularly where drought dominates. Application of quantitative approaches (crop simulation and statistical methods) and phenotyping (aerial imaging, canopy monitoring) to integrate the understanding of interactions of genetics, growth and development and the bio-physical environment on crop yield.
Main contributions in crop physiology and plant breeding methodologies that impact on the sugar and grains industries in Australia and elsewhere. Most recent major research program was in a national research program to develop “Climate-ready Cereals”. The areas of industry and science contribution can be summarised into four areas.
