AXA Chair

Dr. Apostolos Voulgarakis awarded with the AXA Chair fund to conduct further research on the topic of Wildfires

As part of his AXA Chair, Dr. Voulgarakis and his team have designed an innovative research programme using a unique combination of novel fire modelling, state-of-the-art Earth system modelling, satellite and in situ observations, and suitable machine learning techniques. This programme will be a step-change in the way we understand and model the Earth system, with the potential to transform a variety of disciplines in the field. It will also impact a variety of sectors that would benefit from better wildfire, climate, and air quality forecasting around the world – for industry, policy making, and society at large.
