Bushfire Research Group


The UNSW Bushfire Research Group is made up of academics, research associates and PhD researchers across the Canberra and Kensington campuses.

It's our aim to improve our understanding of bushfire processes and their relation to firefighter and community safety. In support of this, we're developing scientifically rigorous models to integrate with fire safety and risk management systems. We're also conducting fundamental and applied research into bushfire behaviour and propagation.
