Dr. Alessandro Ossola is an ecologist and environmental scientist. His overarching research interests focus in unravelling the functional links between habitat, biodiversity, humans and eco-hydrological processes at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
Alessandro is a former US National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine NRC Associate within the National Risk Management Research Laboratory of the US Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA) in Cincinnati, Ohio. His work highlighted how climate and people affect vegetation structure across US residential macrosystems.
Alessandro now serves as Research Coordinator of the Which Plant Where project at the Centre for Smart Green Cities at Macquarie University, Sydney.
His work will provide critical insights into how urban plantings can fail, survive or thrive in different climatic and soil-related conditions across Australian cities.
