Dr Randall Donohue's primary research areas are vegetation science and remote sensing. Using these expertise, he seeks 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. Randall undertook his PhD jointly with ANU and CSIRO Land and Water and graduated in 2010. Since 2007, he has been with CSIRO Land and Water conducting research in the fields of ecohydrology and remote sensing. Prior to his PhD, Randall 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.
