Jake Gillen holds an Agricultural Science degree from Adelaide
University and in 2010 completed a PhD titled "An ecological study of the landscape, perennial plants and soils of the cooper creek floodplain, South Australia" in the Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies at the Australian National University.
His love affair with the arid zone began with his work as a jackeroo in the Northern Flinders Ranges in the 1970s.
Jake is an experienced arid zone plant ecologist who has conducted floristic surveys in the Murray Mallee and in the Kanowana and Coongie Wetlands of South Australia, as well as biological surveys in the Anangu Pitjantjarra lands, the western Simpson Desert and elsewhere.
He was the Co-ordinating Ecologist at Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park for six years, during which time he established a seed bank of indigenous plants within the park, and developed plant propagation for land management purposes.
