Biography

Karen completed her PhD at the University of Tasmania in 2000, and then completed two postdoctoral research positions before taking up a lecturing position in 2008. From 2001-2003, she conducted research on disease management in Indonesian acacia plantations (ACIAR-funded project), and from 2004-2007, completed an ARC-Linkage postdoctoral fellowship examining plant responses to stress for detection via remote sensing. From 2008-2011, she then conducted research for the CRC Forestry in plant responses to defoliation.

Research Themes

Karen's research aligns to the research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability. She is committed to supporting forestry and agriculture using sustainable management solutions to manage plant health and disease. This includes sustainable management of disease via use of integrated pest management and fungicide alternatives.

Diversity and abundance of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in native and managed landscapes in Tasmania (2015 - 2017)$17,175
Description
This is an application for operating funds to support a PhD project (Mrs Reham Mohammed). This project will investigate the distribution and abundance of native arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in southern Tasmania, using a range of molecular approaches. Information of AMF in Tasmania is poor however interest in the role of soil biology for both conservation and productive landscapes is growing. AMF are symbionts that colonise plant roots and can play vital roles in plant functioning and soil health, both in natural and managed landscapes. The project aims include identification of key AMF species and exploration of how factors such as land use, soil type and season alters the diversity and abundance of these species

Increasing pulse plant pathology capacity via a project to clarify the interaction of waterlogging and ascochyta in lentils and faba beans (2014 - 2015)$11,088
Description
This research project examines waterlogging and acid tolerance in lentils and faba beans, which requires plant pathology capacity to tease apart the association of disease as a response to waterlogging. The project will be a pot-trial in Mt Pleasant and involve stress-screening and pathogen Identification. The aims are to: 1) clarify the role of disease in screening for waterlogging and acid tolerance; 2) increase capacity in pulse pathology in Tasmania.

Optimal management of pre-harvest rot in sweet-cherry (2013 - 2016)$149,779
Description
The project will generate important results as a solid basis on which to develop decision support and optimal management practice for pre-harvest rot of sweet cherries in Australia. The research aims are to: clarify the key pathogens leading to pre-harvest rot in several representative sweet cherry regions in Australia (southern Tasmania, central west NSW, Adelaide Hills SA and southern Victoria; determine infection pathways for the key pathogens in sweet cherry in Australia; and ensure that management is targeted at the right time. The project will increase knowledge to support (or challenge) the current understanding of rot pathogens in sweet cherry in Australia. Findings will provide a basis for future research on optimal fungicide use and other management tools.
