I apply global dynamic vegetation models and several bioclimatic envelopes (correlative based models) to examine the impacts of future and palaeoclimate change on surviving species and extinct ones (also see link).
Since Feb 2018 I work at Flinders University and I try tracing the role of environmental fluctuations on the evolution of Australia’s natural history (vegetation communities) over spatial times scales (e.g. 200,000 years back). Why I do this? It is simple, if we understand how did Australia’s endemic biota respond and adapt to periods of prolonged climatic stress, we can learn lessons that will help Australia’s environment and society in the future.
Co-supervision: I co-supervised four PhD students and all are graduated.
My position is primarily research-focused.
