Online lunchtime sessions with Centre for Forest Value researchers

You can find out more about the research currently being undertaken at the ARC Training Centre for Forest Value through free online lunchtime sessions this month.

The Centre for Forest Value has been producing industry-ready graduates and postdoctoral fellows with broad perspectives of the forest industry since 2016.

“This is a great way to showcase the amazing work of our PhD students and the research taking place at the Centre,” the Director, Associate Professor Julianne O’Reilly-Wapstra, said.

“Our aim is to keep our affiliates informed and to highlight some important milestones. Over the past four years, we have seen our students excel in their research and make valuable connections and contributions within the forestry sector.”

The 30-minute lunchtime sessions kicked off last week and will be held again this Wednesday, November 11, and next Tuesday, November 17, from 12 noon. Participants can register for the online event via Eventbrite link here (you will receive an email with the webinar link). A Q&A will be held at the end of each presentation.

The upcoming presentations include:

Wednesday, 11 November:

Michelle Balasso – Wood quality and segregation systems: the potential for solid wood products from fibre grown plantations;

Kent Davis –Utilisation of sawn timber from plantation resources for appearance applications – a simulated yield perspective.

Tuesday, 17 November
