Professor Stephen Tyerman

Professor Tyerman has researched nutrition, salinity and water relations in plants for some 25 years. In 2001 he obtained the Wine Industry Chair of Viticulture at the University of Adelaide. He has received several awards for his plant physiology research and was elected as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2003. He is currently head of the Plant Physiology, Viticulture and Horticulture Research Group within the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine, and a member of the Wine Innovation Cluster. He is a Chief Investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology and runs a node of the Cetnre at the University of Adelaide.
