Biographical details

Associate Professor Brent Kaiser received a BSc (Agriculture) and MSc (Plant Physiology) degree from the University of Guelph (Canada) and a PhD from the Australian National University (Plant Molecular Biology).

As a postdoctoral fellow, Brent worked in a number of research groups (UBC Canada, Nice France and Canberra Australia) in areas focused on the molecular regulation of nitrogen transport in plants. Brent accepted a lectureship at the University of Adelaide in 2003, where he established a research lab in plant mineral nutrition focusing on nitrogen transport in cereals and nitrogen-fixing legumes. While in Adelaide, Brent taught in the Viticulture and Wine Science program and acted as Program coordinator for the undergraduate and postgraduate Wine Science degrees.

Brent has recently joined the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment at the University of Sydney where he is an Associate Professor in Legume Biology and Molecular Genetics within the Centre for Carbon Water and Food.

Research interests

Brent is a molecular physiologist examining the regulation and control of plant nitrogen transport systems. The topics of the research include: i) Nitrogen transport and assimilatory mechanisms that operate in plants to enhance uptake and redistribution of inorganic nitrogen and 2) Symbiotic signaling that promote symbiotic nitrogen fixation within the legume rhizobia symbiosis.

Teaching and supervision

Brent currently supervises three PhD students and two postdoctoral fellows. His teaching interest is in plant molecular genetics and molecular biology and its link to physiological responses and environmental adaptation.
