Research interests/background

Prior to undertaking a PhD, I worked as an extension agronomist with NSW Department of Agriculture in Wagga Wagga and then the Hunter Valley, and worked for a private agronomic company in the United Kingdom. From April 2010 until August 2011, I worked in plant biosecurity for Plant Health Australia, a not-for-profit company funded by industry and government based in Canberra.

Current research areas include:

  • Agronomy and nutrition of aerobic rice
  • Herbicide residues in soils and implications for crop growth
  • Phosphorus efficiency of crop plants, focussing on loading of phosphate into grains
  • Enhanced efficiency fertilisers in the subtropics
  • Cover cropping and intercropping in field crops and horticulture
  • Coffee varietal performance in the Australian subtropics and the Pacific
  • Organic agricultural systems (see details at Organic Research Centre website)
  • Recycled organics: impacts of amendments on soils and crops
  • Nitrogen efficiency in subtropical sugarcane systems
  • Subtropical grazing systems
  • New high value crops for coastal cropping systems in the subtropics
