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.
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.
