After finishing his PhD, he continues as a postdoctoral research fellow in HIE. His first postdoc research project investigated the modelling of the responses of Australian grassland phenology to rainfall variability. This project is supported by an ARC Discovery fund under the supervision of Prof Belinda Medlyn, Prof Sally Power, Prof David Tissue, and Prof Elise Pendall.
