About

Stephen investigates soil-plant-atmosphere interactions in natural and managed ecosystems. Stephen studied in the UK gaining a PhD in Tropical Soil Science from The University of Reading. He has held research positions in the University of Western Australia, the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Monash University. At the University of Melbourne, Stephen has led research to quantify the carbon and greenhouse gas implications of landscape management and land-use change events in tropical savannas, forest systems and now the urban landscape. Stephen's role in urban horticulture began in 2011 and his current research and teaching interests relate to the role of trees, soil and other vegetation systems in providing environmental and social benefits; such as microclimate cooling, energy saving, carbon sequestration, biodiversity habitat and improved nutrient / water cycling.
