Theme leaders

Adam Cross

Part of the coordinating research group, providing supervision and guidance to HDR students, as well as undertaking research on seed biology and in other fields within the broader themes of the Centre.

Dr Adam Cross is a Research Fellow at the Department of Environment and Agriculture, Curtin University. He has worked as a Restoration Ecologist since completing a Ph.D. in botany at the University of Western Australia in 2014, engaging in multidisciplinary research with numerous collaborators to understand the ecological limitations of hostile mine wastes to the establishment of native plant communities. The primary focus of this research to date has been the rehabilitation of tailings, the fine-particulate residue wastes of ore processing. Other research interests include community ecology, seed biology, the conservation and ecology of freshwater aquatic ecosystems and carnivorous plants.
