    Research Interests:
    At the Centre National de Recherches Meteorologiques, Meteo France, Toulouse, I worked on the preparation of surface soil moisture and leaf area index data assimilation into the French land surface model ISBA. During this period, I was involved in the validation of different passive and active microwave satellite products over France, with a particular focus on Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS). Since my return to Australia I have coordinated and led a number of calibration/validation (cal/val) campaigns for the Australian land validation segment of European Space Agencys SMOS mission in the Australian arid zone and the Murrumbidgee River catchment. In addition to this, I continues to work on land surface data assimilation and also participated in the Australian cal/val campaigns for the Soil Moisture Active Passive and the Aquarius missions., As remote sensing of the environment includes other aspects, but soil moisture, I am now also working on the spectral properties of vegetation for bushfire modelling and some work on observing snow properties in Antarctica for climate change research work.

    Phone:
    +61 3 990 53419
    Office:
    Room 126, Building 82, Clayton Campus
    Research Interests:
    From a structural engineering perspective, natural and man-made hazards, e.g. earthquakes and bomb blasts, have many commonalities; most important are the unknown force and deformation demands on our built environment which often lead to local structural damage, and in the absence of redundancy, progressive structural collapse. Research has shown that seismic design and retrofit concepts, e.g. confinement in columns, can go a long way to also harden structures against air blast loadings, and that redundancy in a structural system can prevent progressive structural collapse for either load case. Thus, modern structural design needs to incorporate a multi-hazard risk assessment and hazard mitigation strategy based on a comprehensive performance assessment of the entire structural system’s response to all critical loads. To accomplish this, validated models and simulations of the performance of complex systems need to be developed. Validation of these simulation tools, in turn, requires large or full-scale structural testing that is representative of actual damage patterns and failure modes, as well as realistic loading patterns and rates. Issues of validated simulations in the hazard reduction of structures under natural and man-made hazards will be discussed.
