Higher Degree by Research

Our researchers find solutions to complex environmental problems, with science spanning meteorology, geology, biology, chemistry, hydrology and more.

We investigate key issues in biodiversity, sustainability, carbon capture, and emissions management—particularly in the context of tropical ecosystems and arid landscapes. We collaborate with government, environmental agencies, consultancies and others for results that make a difference to the world.
