My key research interests centre around the influence of climate change on species responses, community compositions and ecosystem functioning. The main focus of my project is to investigate the effects of extreme drought on the recovery, responses and interactions of grassland communities. With this I hope to help the scientific community build a better understanding of how our grassland ecosystems will progress under adverse future conditions.
