Dr Andrew Hall

Andrew Hall's role within ILWS is in habitat occupancy modelling to better understand flood plain ecology. By using spatially referenced data, he seeks to understand the determinants of species occupancy, estimate their likely extent, and forecast the effectiveness of management decisions on species conservation.  Andrew Hall is a senior lecturer in Climate and Spatial Sciences in the School of Environmental Sciences. He has produced numerous publications in remote sensing object based image analysis and climate suitability studies, stemming from research conducted within various projects from 2000 to 2012 at the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre.

Research Interests

  • Landscape phenology, habitat occupancy and remote sensing image analysis
  • Novel GIS techniques
  • Climatology
  • Climate change and variability

Bachelor of Science, University of Otago, 1997
Master of Science with Distinction (Climatology), University of Otago, 1999
Doctor of Philosophy (Remote Sensing), Charles Sturt University, 2003
