Biographical details

Tom Bishop is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Environmental Sciences and is currently the Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment. His research interests are in modelling and predicting the variation of environmental properties in space and time with an emphasis on applying this to soil and water science. He currently teaches Biometry, and Hydrology in the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment. He is an Associate Editor for the European Journal of Soil Science and Geoderma. Prior to starting work at the University of Sydney in 2007 he held postdoctoral positions at the University of Florida in the USA, Rothamsted Research in the United Kingdom and the University of New South Wales.

Research interests

In broad terms my research focuses on the use of statistics to model and predict the variation of environmental properties in time and space. In the age of ubiquitous environmental data I believe there is an increasing opportunity for using such models to more precisely manage the environment at finer spatial and temporal scales. Such models are far from developed but I believe some combination of mechanistic and statistical modelling is required to predict in space and time. My main interests are in applying these methods to soil and water science.

Currently my main research focus is on developing observation systems for soil moisture and soil organic carbon using a combination of mechanistic models, space-time statistics, geospatial data products and field observations. The aim being able to predict in time and space at resolutions of 1 day and 250m, respectively.

I also have ongoing interests in (i) sampling and monitoring schemes (ii) quantifying the amount and source of uncertainty in models and predictions (iii) change detection in space and time.

Recently completed projects include:

  • mapping Phytophthora cinnamomi in the Gondwana rainforest of eastern Australia
  • assessing the impact that the 2001/2002 bushfires had on the hydrological cycle of Sydney’s water supply catchments
  • optimising water quality monitoring schemes.

Teaching and supervision

I teach within the Biometry and Hydrology units offered by the Faculty of Agriculture & Environment. Namely

  • Introductory Statistical Methods (ENVX1001)
  • Applied Statistical Methods (ENVX2001)
  • Statistics for the Natural Sciences (ENVX3002)
  • Introductory Hydrology (LWSC2001)
  • Advanced Hydrology and Modelling (LWSC3007)
  • I share coordination of the Biometry (ENVX) units with Dr Floris Van Ogtrop.

Currently I am the main supervisor of 3 PhD students and 1 postdoctoral researcher, and Associate Supervisor of 3 PhD students.
