Gordon Hickey

Professor Hickey is a member of the Department of Natural Resource Sciences. His research interests focus on the sustainability of the natural environment. In particular, natural resource policy, regulation and assessment, associated international development programs and forest management. His research draws upon numerous disciplines to integrate science-based knowledge with socio-economic considerations. This is done to inform strategic decision-making at a range of scales and support innovative resource-based policies.

Mark Lefsrud

Professor Lefsrud is a member of the Department of Bioresource Engineering. His research focus is on the development of bioprocesses and improvements in plant growth environmental energy usage. His research concentrates on the development and improvement of new sources of biomass (food, fibre and/or fuel); the improvement of energy efficiency of greenhouses and plant growth environments (light (LEDs) and heating systems); and the development of a proteomic system for monitoring of microorganisms and plants.
