About Sharon Robinson

Sharon Robinson is a Professor in the School of Biological Sciences and Institute for Conservation Biology and Environmental Management, University of Wollongong. Her main research focus is understanding how plants respond to Climate Change induced environmental stress in Antarctica (Cool Plants) and Australia (Plant Stress Ecophysiology). In addition she is interested in elucidating the mechanism that allows thermoregulatory plants to maintain their flowers at temperatures well above ambient air temperatures (Hot Plants). Plant responses can be monitored at a range of levels from the molecular to the ecological and her research encompasses all of these levels. She has produced award winning teaching innovations and publishes in the educational literature as well as in her field of expertise. She is also passionate about making science accessible to the public through Photographic exhibitions, YouTube videos and articles for the public.
