Kim has completed his Bachelor of Geomatics at the University of Tasmania and is currently completing his PhD in flash flood forecasting.

Student project

Significant proportions of Australia’s population live in flash flood-prone areas within short duration catchments. The production of rain fields data products by the Bureau of Meteorology and recent advances in 2D hydrodynamic modelling, in conjunction with applied communications theory and practice, provide an opportunity to develop a short response catchment flood modelling and warning capability that delivers life-saving, accessible, timely, targeted and tailored warnings for flash flooding events.
