Matt Gilliham is Director of the Waite Research Institute, the University of Adelaide’s flagship for agriculture, food and wine research. He is also Professor of Crop Molecular Physiology in the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine, program leader in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology, Chief Investigator on the ARC Training Centre for Innovative Wine Production, convenor for the Adapting to abiotic stress and climate change special interest group of the Society for Experimental Biology, UK, and recent Honorary Secretary of the Australian Society for Plant Scientists. Matt gained a BSc in Ecology from Lancaster University and a PhD in Plant Physiology from the University of Cambridge, UK. After a postdoc at Cambridge, he immigrated to Australia to run the Plant Transport and Signalling Laboratory at the Waite Campus, University of Adelaide, in 2006. He has won a number of prestigious awards, including an ARC Future Fellowship (2014), and a Science and Innovation award (Australian Government). He is an editor of Plant Physiology. Matt’s areas of research specialisation is crop plant nutrition and stress resilience with a focus on salinity and drought tolerance. Specifically, his group studies the transport and signalling processes that underpin improvements in crop nutrition and stress tolerance. His research is applied through plant breeding to modify key physiological processes in plants to improve crop yield and quality in the field.
