Adam Frew is an ecologist who has a particular interest in the role of silicon in plant biology and ecology. He completed his undergraduate training at the University of St Andrews in the UK before moving to Australia where he completed his PhD at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (Western Sydney University) under the supervision of Associate Prof. Scott Johnson and Associate Prof. Jeff Powell. He then moved to Charles Sturt University in 2017, becoming part of the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation, when he was awarded a Faculty Postdoctoral Fellowship.
