Dr Randall Donohue

Senior Research Scientist

Contact details:


My primary research areas are vegetation science and remote sensing. Using these expertise, I seek to better understand how vegetation changes in its structure and function, and what drives those changes. Current research includes prediction of crop yields, nation-wide and global estimation of pasture biomass, and using remote sensing for monitoring vegetation condition.

I undertook my PhD jointly with ANU and CSIRO Land and Water and graduated in 2010. Since 2007, I have been with CSIRO Land and Water conducting research in the fields of ecohydrology and remote sensing.

Prior to my PhD, I worked as a spatial analyst for the Australian and Tasmanian Governments and as a consultant in the private sector, involved primarily in the collation and analysis of vegetation data.
