Research

Plant and crop physiologist with wide interests including photosynthesis, stomatal responses, senescence, cold hardening, crop modelling and growth measurements. Currently working on the use of hyperspectral reflectance of leaves and crops as a diagnostic tool particularly when collected from manned and unmanned aerial platforms as an aid to environmental, vegetation, crop and forestry monitoring and management. Has developed expertise in biological image analyses and interpretation for various uses.
