Biography

Prof Lambert Brau is the Deputy Dean, Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment  he has previously held the position of Deputy Head of School, School of Life and Environmental Sciences and Associate Head of School (Development and International)
His research focusses on soil health, sustainable agriculture and agro-ecology. He works on the physiological, genetic and biochemical basis of plant-microbe interactions and the application of beneficial microbes to enhance crop production in Australian agricultural systems to decrease dependence on chemical fertilizer inputs. Internationally, he works on integrated soil fertility management practices by smallholder farmers  to increase yields and farm profitability. With a strong focus on impact, he links with key industries and funding bodies to address critical productivity, environmental and sustainability challenges faced nationally (Grains Research Development Corporation, National Landcare Programme and Melbourne Water Authority) and internationally (ACIAR – Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, Crawford Fund, CIAT – Centre for International Tropical Agriculture), CATAS (Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences), CIRAD (French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development).
