Dr Ashley Wright

Dr Ashley Wright completed his PhD in December 2017 at Monash University. His student project looked at flood modelling and error minimisation in flood predictability. Upon completion of his thesis, Ashley was awarded the Eric Laurenson medal by Monash University for his excellent research, utilisation potential of his findings and excellent grades. He currently works at Monash University as a research fellow.

His thesis is available here.

Student project

Land-based sensors can often be subject to damage or malfunction in a natural hazard, and direct measurement of flood levels can also be a dangerous exercise. This study, completed in December 2017, applied technology developments, including those gathered from recent space missions, to inform the flood modelling process. In particular, the role of errors within the modelling process was explored to give an understanding of the confidence provided by any predictions.
