Plants, evolutionary adaptation and global change

I’ve recently started a position in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences, University of Melbourne.

I’ll be starting new work on plants, evolutionary adaptation and global change as part of my Centenary Fellowship.

I’m excited about new collaborations with colleagues from SEFS, Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute, the Quantitative and Applied Ecology Research Group and several groups in Spain.

If you’re a student looking to work on the evolution of plants and life-history traits in fire-prone ecosystems it’s a good time to flick me an email:


In Mediterranean pine-oak forests, some plants need fire to complete their life cycles, and others have adaptations, such as thick bark or the capacity to resprout, that aid recovery after fire. Catalonia, Spain.
