About this Event

Western Sydney University welcomes you to Research Week at Western. For further events during this week, please visit the website at www.westernsydney.edu.au/researchweek

Western Sydney University’s first ARC Laureate, Distinguished Professor Belinda Medlyn, has been researching the impact of climate change on Australia’s vegetation for nearly thirty years. Over that time, her work has shifted from trying to predict the likely effects decades into the future, to documenting the effects of droughts, heatwaves and fires as they happen around us.

In this Laureate Address, Professor Medlyn will reflect on her career as a scientist, educator and mother. She will describe what we have learnt about the resilience of Australian vegetation to climate stress, and what lessons we can draw for the future.
