Matthew D Wilson
Matthew (Matt) Wilson is a Professor in Spatial Information and Director of the Geospatial Research Institute Toi Hangarau at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. He is a surface water hydrologist and geographical information scientist with specialisations including flood risk, surface water dynamics, water resources, remote sensing, numerical model development, uncertainty analysis and the assessment of the potential impacts of climate change. Previous research has included the assessment of the potential impacts of climate change on flood risk and water resources in the Caribbean and the analysis of surface water hydrodynamics on a 300 km reach of the Amazon River in Brazil. In New Zealand, his current research includes leading the uncertainty theme for a national scale flood risk assessment, the creation of a digital twin for flood resilience, and the creation of algorithms for processing of novel airborne GNSS reflectometry measurements for estimation of soil water content.
