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.
