Ash completed his Bachelor of Science at University of Otago, Dunedin in 2007, followed by a Postgraduate Diploma of Science in 2008. His interest in air pollution modelling and dispersion lead Ash to complete a Masters of Science in 2009. His MSc research specifically focused on PM10 air pollution modelling, boundary layer structure, and the role of atmospheric processes in ambient air-quality. Ash has developed a strong research interest in micro- and local-scale climatology, climate change mitigation practices and the potential of green infrastructure for the amelioration of urban heat.

Ash began his PhD (Mitigating urban extreme heat in Adelaide and Melbourne through irrigation and stormwater reintegration) at the beginning of 2010, which is linked to Project P3 (Green Cities and Microclimate), within the Cities as Water Supply Catchments Program.
