Rebecca Darbyshire

 

Rebecca Darbyshire is a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences. Her current research focuses on climate adaptation in the temperate perennial fruit tree industry, specifically for apple, pear and cherry.

Rebecca’s role is as chief investigator on a multi-partnered project and primarily involves modelling both biophysical processes and climate projections. Key areas of interest are for winter chilling, spring flowering, potential yield and extreme temperature exposure.

Rebecca received her PhD from the University of Melbourne in 2013 and her project investigated the impacts of climate change on winter and spring phenology for Australian pome fruit. During her candidature she received several awards including an APA scholarship, the Nancy Millis Postgraduate Award, receiver of joint PIARN and British Council UK Early Career Exchange, the Mary Sloane travelling scholarship and several MSLE research student publishing awards.
