I have been researching into the impacts of climate change on both environmental and production systems for the past 20 years. I am interested in plant stress responses, viticulture and wine production. Currently I manage the Higher Education Agriculture and Technology program at Melbourne Polytechnic where degrees and industry relevant short programs are taught. I am an Honorary Fellow (Affiliate Staff) at La Trobe University and an Honorary Fellow Melbourne University. The work presented here is based on collaboration with the Australian government organization, CSIRO Agriculture, SA Australia.
