Personal profile

Biography

My current research focuses on understanding the success of invasive plants, plant and vegetation responses to climate change, plant conservation and adaptation under climate change, and urban green space. I also lead the Green Cities Which Plant Where project at Macquarie University in collaboration with Western Sydney University and NSW Office of Environment & Heritage, and am Co-Director of MQ's Centre for Smart Green Cities. In addition I am a Board Member of Bush Heritage, Trustee of the Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust, and Council member of the Australian Flora Foundation.
