Florian Busch

Florian’s research focuses on identifying genetic attributes underlying a strong positive growth response to elevated CO2 in Eucalyptus species, Modelling photosynthetic processes on the leaf level and linking photosynthetic CO2 assimilation to photosynthetic electron transport. His interests center on how the environment influences a range of related processes from the photosynthetic light reactions to the Calvin-Benson cycle and stomatal physiology.

Florian has been a Postdoctoral fellow at The Australian National University since 2012. He is a plant ecophysiologist interested in the processes involving photosynthesis and currently works closely with Professor Graeme Farquahar focusing on identifying genetic attributes underlying a strong positive growth response to elevated CO2 in Eucalyptus species, modelling photosynthetic processes on the leaf level and linking photosynthetic CO2 assimilation to photosynthetic electron transport.

Florian holds a PhD from the University of Düsseldorf (2008) and a Postdoctoral fellow from the University of Toronto (2008-2011)
