Biographical details

Charlie Warren has a bachelors degree from the University of Tasmania and a PhD from the University of Western Australia. After completing a PhD Charlie jetted off to Canada to work as a postdoc for two years. In 2003 Charlie was lured back to Australia to take up a highly-competitive APD research fellowship at The University of Melbourne. In 2006 Charlie moved to The University of Sydney where he was a QEII fellow for five years. Charlie is currently a Future Fellow and Assoc Prof and runs a laboratory in Plant Ecophysiology and Ecosystem Processes.

Research interests

Our research group investigates the functioning of plants and ecosystems. The scope of this research includes the internal activities of plants (e.g. photosynthesis, respiration, gas exchange, nutrient uptake), how plants cope and interact with their environment, and the role of plants in shaping ecosystem processes. Studies range from biochemical through to ecosystem scales. Some of the research projects are:

  • How plants and ecosystems are affected constant versus “pulsed” supplies of nutrients and water
  • Competition for nitrogen between plants, bacteria and fungi
  • Interaction between plants and soil
  • Soil processes at cold temperatures (e.g. under snow)
  • Metabolomics as a tool to investigate stress tolerance mechanisms
  • Photosynthesis and diffusion of CO2 within leaves

Further details on research projects can be found on the laboratory website.

We are based in laboratories equipped with > $500,000 of state-of-the-art instrumentation at the University of Sydney. Our group has a series of active field and laboratory experiments and ventures into the field on a regular basis. We have received >$2.5M in research funding in the past 5 years, and welcome potential collaborators, postdocs and students.
