Research Overview


  • Owen conducts research on bushfire risk. This includes impacts on human health (smoke), assets (houses), and environmental values (fauna and flora).

    The methods involve a range of field work (e.g. monitoring reptiles or smoke), data management (including advanced Geographic Information Systems and remote sensing) and statistical modelling.

    The approach is a landscape one: understanding how risk varies across large areas.
