Event description
THE IGNITOR, Science Leaders Forum: Hot, dry and hungry.

About this Event

The Ignitor, event series is inspired by the stories of our alumni and researchers who are thought leaders in Science, Research and Industry.

Join us for a thought-provoking night with two of the Science Faculty’s finest researchers, Professor Ros Gleadow and Dr Ailie Gallant as they share their knowledge on the pressing global question;

“Will climate change leave us hot, dry and hungry?”

Rising temperatures, increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, and declining water availability pose significant risks for the nutrition, quality, and affordability of our food.

Professor Ros and Dr Ailie, will talk about the current trends and patterns we see in climate change and how it affects our families and communities by threatening our food supply.

Professor Ros Gleadow

Leads the Monash Plant Ecophysiology group. Her broad research area is on the interaction between plants and their environment. Her current focus is on the effect of climate change on nutrition and crops. Ross is a Board Member of The Global Plant Council.
