  • ABOUT
  • PUBLICATIONS

Jason Sharples is Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics in the School of Physical, Environmental and Mathematical Sciences (PEMS) at UNSW Canberra.

Jason’s research is aimed at understanding the fundamental processes that drive extreme and dynamic bushfire behaviour, and how these processes contribute to the development of large conflagrations and firestorms. It also seeks to provide a more comprehensive scientific basis for bushfire risk management.

Jason is a member of the Computational Science Initiative at UNSW Canberra and is a Fellow of the Modelling and Simulation Society of Australia and New Zealand.
