Dr Thomas Duff

Dr Thomas Duff started his career in native forestry in Victoria, before shifting across to fire research.   After spending 10 years in academic research at the University of Melbourne, primarily with Kevin Tolhurst, he recently transitioned to the R&D team at CFA.  He specialises in bringing research to practice, with recent areas of focus including the effectiveness of fuel treatment, fire simulation and improving how fuels are mapped and measured.  Much of his work is ensuring that the decision support tools that we develop are reliable and relevant in the real world.
