Bioenergy crop fluxes and an a-maize-ing conundrum
As we enter an age of biofuel innovation, research efforts have focused on how bioenergy crops alter the carbon, water and energy cycles of the landscape.
With the growing push for more sustainable and clean energy sources, alternatives to the main bioenergy crops, such as corn and soybean, are likely to become more widespread in the future.
Dr Caitlin Moore of the University of Western Australia will present findings from her research, including data from long-term monitoring equipment installed in bioenergy and food crops, the impacts of land conversion on carbon and nitrogen cycles, and an a-maize-ing flux conundrum.

Mar 4, 2021 01:00 PM in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

Dr Caitlin Moore
Bioenergy crop fluxes and an a-maize-ing conundrum @University of Western Australia
I am currently employed as a Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia on a collaborative project with TERN, CSIRO, Edith Cowan University and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. My primary responsibility is to install hyperspectral sensing capacity at the three WA OzFlux sites. Prior to this I was employed by the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I was the first postdoc hired in the new Center for Advanced Bioenergy and Bioproducts Innovation (CABBI), where I was tasked with maintaining six existing flux towers and installing two new ones. I also worked on numerous projects, including the Water Efficient Sorghum Technologies (WEST) project learning about high-throughput phenotyping and hyperspectral sensing of crop cultivars. I completed a PhD at Monash University on partitioning the productivity and phenology dynamics of trees and grasses in an Australian tropical savanna at the Howard Springs OzFlux site.
