His work forms the basis of operational fire behaviour prediction systems used across Australia and improves the safety of bushfire fighters and the general public. Andrew Sullivan has been involved in bushfire research since joining CSIRO in 1991 and recently completed a PhD study of the competitive thermokinetics of the combustion of bushfire fuels. He has contributed to the development of fire spread prediction software, models of radiant heat from bushfires and the study of wind and fire interaction.
