Professor Andrew Hall

Senior Principal Gulbali Research Fellow in Geospatial Science

Gulbali Institute


Andrew Hall is an earth scientist with specialist knowledge in climatology and remote sensing, his work reliant on expert application of geographic information science. He is recognised internationally for pioneering work in high resolution vegetation remote sensing and plant phenology responses to climate change and variability.

Prior to his current role, Andrew drove the development of courses in geospatial science and climatology with a focus on postgraduate education. He was associate and then acting director of the Institute for Land, Water and Society from 2017 to 2021, leading a research support culture that delivered a three-fold increase in externally funded research expenditure while managing significant Covid-related operational and resourcing constraints.

Andrew is an integral member of environmental science research teams, being a named investigator on grants totalling more than $15m. He is currently senior principal research fellow in the Water Research Team, conducting geospatial research to maximise ecological benefits from environmental water.
