Dr. Bronwyn Myers
Dr Bronwyn Myers’ early research has been the eco-physiological responses of plants to drought and salinity stress. She has conducted this research in natural ecosystems in temperate and tropical areas of Australia, and in agricultural systems in temperate Australia. More recently, she has gained extensive experience in coordinating research and training programs and writing and editing review reports in a number of areas of natural resource management.
Dr Myers has managed major research projects in both southern and northern Australia. Whilst employed by the Victorian Department of Agriculture, she supervised technical and field staff, and supervised undergraduate students from Australian universities and a number of European universities as well as supervising postgraduate students.
She has managed two ACIAR-funded projects on fire in northern Australia and Indonesia, AusAID-funded projects on land and resource management in eastern Indonesia, and on health mapping in eastern Indonesia, and a DCCEE-funded project on climate change impacts on groundwater resources in Timor-Leste.
