Assoc Prof Charles Warren

Charlie Warren has a bachelors degree from the University of Tasmania, a PhD from the University of Western Australia and formal qualifications in university teaching and supervision of graduate students. Charlie has worked in Canada and France and maintains active overeas research links.

Charlie's main research interests are:

  • Interactions between plants and soil
  • Diffusion of CO2 within leaves
  • The ecosystem N cycle and N uptake by plants
  • Plant and soil responses to temporally variable water and nutrients

Charlie is willing to take on keen PhD and honours students. He will entertain any project that fits within his area of expertise and can be accommodated by the School’s facilities. Interested students should approach Charlie with details of undergraduate grades and areas of interest.
