Professor Stefan Arndt completed his PhD in plant ecophysiology at the University of Vienna in 2000 and is working at the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences of the University of Melbourne since 2002.

The major focus of his research is on the interface between plants and their environment.

Stefan is particularly interested to understand how plants respond to environmental stresses like heat or drought and how we can use this knowledge to select plants for future climates. He also investigates how ecosystems respond to changes in climate and how processes like the carbon balance and fluxes of greenhouse gases in forest ecosystems are influenced by environmental conditions. His contribution to this field has been to use physiological and ecological measures to increase our understanding of how ecosystems function and how we can better manage them.Stefan’s research team investigates the carbon-, water- and greenhouse gas exchanges in native ecosystems in Australia. Since 2010 Stefan studies ecosystem processes at the Wombat Flux Supersite, one of 12 long-term research sites in Australia that are funded by the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network. Stefan coordinates the Climate Change stream in the Master of the Environment and he teaches subjects in climate change science. He has been the Director of the Burnley Campus since 2011 and has led the transition of the campus form a pure teaching campus to a modern urban horticulture demonstration centre with a strong research, teaching and outreach focus.
