Honorary and Adjunct Appointments
Honorary adjunct appointments benefit the University by increasing cooperation and activities between the University and leaders and members of academia, professions, business, industry, community, and the public sector, within Australia and overseas.
We value the contribution that recognised academic experts are able to provide to the Institute's research and research training programs.
Professor Emeritus Jann Conroy continues to make a valuable contribution to the Institute. Her research has focused on understanding how climate change will influence the trade-off between growth and water use of fast- and slow- growing eucalypts.
