Research Interests

The main focus of my research lies in the modelling of soil erosion by wind and water in low rainfall cropping regions using remotely sensed data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The application of remote sensing techniques and modern satellite data can facilitate the evaluation of natural processes such as soil erosion over very large regions (e.g. 160,000 km2). Higher-resolution datasets are now available, with high temporal imaging capabilities, ranging from daily to every 30 minutes. This high temporal resolution is critical when it comes to studying soil erosion as this process is highly variable through space and time.

This research project aims to demonstrate the benefit of a joint wind-water erosion modelling approach to test the influence of climate change and extreme environmental condition scenarios (e.g. drought, intense precipitation, bushfires) on soil erosion for a wide range of land cover over large regions. Results from these models can then inform corrective measures for future land management.
