  • Centre for Sustainable Ecosystem Solutions
  • School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences, Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health 2006 -

Overview


Ross leads a multi-disciplinary research team that is dedicated to the development of a quantitative understanding of risks posed by landscape fires to multiple values and the way such risks can be altered through cost-effective management and global change. Major funding sources for his team include the NSW Government, ARC, NSW Environmental Trusts, Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC, CSIRO, USGS and the European Union.

Ross is Director of the Centre for Environmental Risk Management of Bushfires and the new NSW Bushfire Risk Management Research Hub, a collaborative venture between the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, University of Wollongong, University of Tasmania, Western Sydney University and the University of New South Wales.
