Dr Matthew Brookhouse is a Senior Lecturer at the Fenner School of Environment and Society.
Dr Brookhouse completed a BSc (Forestry) Honours at ANU in 1997 and returned to ANU in 2003 after six years designing and implementing growth and yield studies, and forest inventory protocols in Victoria’s commercial native forests.
After receiving his PhD (2008) and two postdoctoral research projects focused on the use of forest structural complexity for landscape planning and dendrochronological reconstruction of river flow in Victoria, he accepted a position as Lecturer in Ecological Modelling and Measurement at the Fenner School of Environment and Society.
In 2012 Dr Brookhouse commenced a dual appointment between the Research School of Biology (Farquhar Lab) and Fenner School and conducted research aimed at understanding water use in regenerating mountain ash forests and [CO2] responsiveness in commercial forest species.
In 2018 he was permanently appointed as a Senior Lecturer in the Fenner School and currently teaches first-year research methods, with a specific focus on helping students make the important connection between the theory of inferential statistics and their application.
Dr Brookhouse continues to explore the genotype-by-[CO2] interactions in eucalypt species and has ongoing dendrochronological, and silvicultural research interests. He also leads the collaborative research efforts focussed on understanding wood-borer induced dieback of snow-gum woodland in the Australian Alps.
