About Justin Chan


Hi there!  I’m currently bumbling my way around a fungal world. Trained in plant ecology, I’m a little far from home. I’m interested in how the ecological interactions between saprotrophic fungi shape community assembly in wood. And as an extension to that, how these interactions affect the rate of wood decay. I’m based in Sydney, Australia.

Using a combination of microbial, macro, and modelling methods, I aim to conceptualise the process of wood decay as a sequential colonisation of multiple wood decay fungi.
