The University of Queensland


Dr Matthew Mason is a Senior Lecturer in the UQ School of Civil Engineering. He began at UQ in 2014 after holding academic positions at The University of Sydney and QUT. Prior to joining UQ, Matthew worked as a catastrophe risk researcher for the industry-focused research centre, Risk Frontiers at Macquarie University. Matthew’s key areas of interest and expertise lie in the fields of wind engineering; stochastic modelling of hazards (including convective storms and tropical cyclones); probabilistic modelling of structural vulnerability to wind, water and hail; catastrophe loss modelling for natural hazards; computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling of the atmosphere; and wind tunnel testing and analysis.
