Jasmine Innocent

Jasmine Innocent’s research focuses on grassland fire behaviour through sloped terrains and non-homogeneous fuel beds. This research will provide insight into fire behaviour that may then be used to improve operational models, improve prediction of real bushfires and subsequently mitigate the risks of bushfire impact. Practitioners currently use a rule of thumb that the rate of spread of fire doubles for every ten degrees of upslope, however there appears to be little empirical evidence for this other than the knowledge of experienced practitioners.

Jasmine is currently working as an applications engineer at the fire protection company, Kidde Australia Pty Ltd.
