About
Dr Yang Chen

Yang completed her PhD on using LiDAR to measure landscape-scale forest fuels in order to generate a time effective, feasible and objective method for forest fuel hazard assessment.

She completed her studies at Monash University in June 2017 where was she also awarded the best student paper at the SPIE Remote Sensing Conference. Yang now works at the CSIRO.

Her thesis is available here.

Student project

The primary option available to reduce fire risks to the community and the environment is through reducing fuel through fuel reduction burns. The development of accurate and reliable methods to quantify forest fuel characteristics and to understand forest fuel change over time is an ongoing requirement due to the continual need for improvement in fire resource management, bushfire suppression, and in framing bushfire related policies. This study used LiDAR to measure landscape-scale forest fuels in order to generate a time effective, feasible and objective method for forest fuel hazard assessment. This study was completed in January 2017.
