With his work spanning physics, applied mathematics and plant physiology, Dr Farquhar’s remarkable work on models of photosynthesis has helped understand and mitigate the effects of climate change on plants, including developing drought-resistant strains of wheat. In his lecture he will share insights from his work as a scientist as well as the contributions he has made to policy as a scientific advisor during key climate change negotiations.

Please take your seats by 9.20am as the lecture will be preceded by a welcome by Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford.
