Jane Thurgood


Jane is a Research Associate working on a global dataset of prescribed burns. She is an Environmental Science student at UEA, currently working to understand the potential of prescribed burns to mitigate wildfire risks and emissions at the global scale.

She is working with land managers all over the world to collate a dataset of prescribed burns, using skills in geospatial analysis to understand how meteorology influences land management decisions. Monitoring these land management decisions at the global scale provides critical information to identify future opportunities to use prescribed burning to reduce wildfire emissions.
