James O'Sullivan Graduate Researcher, Animal Plant & Soil Sciences

James is completing my PhD which explores how rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations affect the uptake and use of phosphorus in crop species. James aims to explore the mechanisms by which plants access various pools of phosphate from soil and how these mechanisms are influence by increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations.

James has received a number of awards. These awards include the Frank Gibbon Award essay competition (Soil Science Australia, 2016), La Trobe Student Union Silver Scholarship (2018), National Soils Conference Travel Bursary (Soil Science Australia, 2018) and the Intellectual Climate Fund Grant (La Trobe Graduate Research School, 2018).

James is a committee member of the Victorian Branch of Soil Science Australia where he assists in the organisation of the societies events. James also participates in science outreach programs for both La Trobe University and Agriculture Victoria.
