Dr Chermelle Engel

Chermelle Engel is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the RMIT Remote Sensing Group working on the detection of active fires from Satellite Observations. Chermelle has H1 honours in Physics and H2A honours in Software Engineering, and a PhD in Earth Sciences all from The University of Melbourne. She worked at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for eight years first on operational consensus weather forecasting, then on data assimilation for numerical weather prediction. After that she worked on fire-weather research at The University of Melbourne and Monash University. Her main interest now is to efficiently and accurately process satellite information for active fire-detection.
