PhD scholarships

I will have two PhD scholarships associated with a Rutherford Discovery Fellowship coming soon. Please see this post for further details. These projects will be within the field of drought impacts in New Zealand forest.

You can search for other scholarships and awards through the University of Auckland Scholarships page. I’m interested in supervising projects that involve plant physiological ecology, plant-climate interactions and ecohydrology. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a mutually agreeable topic.

MSc projects

Are you interested in plant-climate interactions? I have several projects available for MSc and Hons students.

  • Role of water and nutrients in litter decomposition processes (with Georgianne Griffiths)
  • Nocturnal transpiration in kauri forest
  • Hydraulic architecture of kauri and associated species
  • Leaf gas exchange of New Zealand native plants

Internships

Looking for an undergraduate internship in plant ecophysiology? We welcome inquiries from students interested in conducting research at our beautiful forest research site. We have recently hosted students from the US and Europe, as well as local students doing a variety of field and lab-based projects. Get in touch for further details.
