Research biography

Francois came to UQ to do a PhD in sustainable agriculture after 25 years of industry agribusiness experience, in particular in sustainable food production. Francois’s research at UQ has focussed on developing a carbon footprint calculator / software for the cotton industry, with ongoing work on a sustainability management tool for the cotton industry. Further research is focussed around the viability of more sustainable management practices, with the development of the Enviro-$mart certification standard to ensure that ‘sustainability pays’. This work has also lead to the development of a ‘Cooler Rubber’ management tool for the Malaysian Rubber Board as well as sustainability audit for the Malaysian Palm Oil industry.
