Martyn Eliott

Martyn Eliott’s research aim is to economically evaluate prescribed fire as a bushfire risk mitigation tool for south east Queensland. To do this, Martyn is reviewing bushfire and prescribed fire policies property rights and responsibilities, developing a prescribed fire cost model, designing prescribed fire scenarios and simulating the effect of prescribed fire on bushfire burn probabilities with the fire prediction model Phoenix-SABRE. His research aims to estimate the value of select market and non-market resources at risk from bushfire estimate the fire effects of bushfire and prescribed fire on the selected resources and estimate the expected value of avoided bushfire losses due to prescribed fire.
