Manon Sabot, University of New South Wales
Manon's PhD will explore drought extremes in the 21st century. She plans to focus on how we represent the impact of drought on the vegetation in state-of-the-art climate models.
Jinyan (Jim) Yang, Western Sydney University
Jim's PhD explores how we predict leaf area index in response to water availability. Jim has just submitted his first paper: "Applying the concept of ecohydrological equilibrium to predict steady-state leaf area index".
