IN 2014 John completed his PhD on the influence of shelter design on new born lamb survival when working as part of the EverGraze research project.
John is the national leader of the GRDC research project determining the extent of herbicide resistance across the cropping region of Australia. He is also the CSU leader of projects investigating the impact of stripper header fronts on stubble micro-climate and another gaining a greater understanding of preventing haystack fires. He also manages the CSU Herbicide Resistance Testing Service https://science-health.csu.edu.au/eal/herbicide-resistance-testing and is involved in several other research projects.
