Research Interests

The main focus of my research lies in the assessment of the relative suitability (e.g. risks, opportunities) and potential to apply different types of fuel management activities (e.g. planned burning, mechanical fuel load reduction, grazing, etc.) in reducing future wildfire risk.

We also aim to identify the best way to transition from current to alternative fuel management practices, and how to best roll out such assessments across Australia.
