Mohammad Abbasi

Mohammad is a PhD student at Griffith University. His innovative research project addresses a significant public health concern in Australia – the asbestos legacy in the built environment, known as the silent killer. By employing remote sensing imagery, AI, and spatial analytics, the project aims to develop a data-driven forecasting model for asbestos roofs. The outcomes of this research will provide invaluable insights for asbestos management strategies, ultimately helping to reduce asbestos-related diseases and fatalities. Judges said asbestos is a real risk to society and that it is great to see this type of study and approach to the mapping of the hotspots in particular.
