Richard Stirzaker: Principal Research Scientist

Richard is a Principal Research Scientist with CSIRO Agriculture and Food, based in Canberra, Australia. His mission is to apply transdisciplinary science in the context of agricultural development.

Richard did his PhD in soil science and his research has revolved around water use of farming systems at paddock and catchment scales.

Currently Richard is applying his knowledge of soil and irrigation science to the particular problems faced by small scale farmers in developing countries. He has developed a number of simple instruments for measuring soil water and solutes that can structure the learning of farmers and their advisors.
