Claire Farrell

 

Dr Claire Farrell is a Senior Lecturer in Green Infrastructure. Her main research interest involves using plants to make cities more liveable through urban greening.

As a plant scientist, her focus is on plant selection for survival and high performance landscapes. Claire has a PhD in plant ecology and for the last nine years much of her research has focused on developing green roofs for Australian conditions.

Claire’s research includes using natural ecosystems as templates to design optimal green infrastructure to manage stormwater and cool cities. This includes designing and evaluating green facades, rain gardens, green roofs and ‘woody meadows’. Woody meadows are naturalistic plantings of Australian shrubs to improve the appearance and function of low maintenance landscapes.
