Andréa investigates the mechanisms by which the oceans affect the climate through numerical models. She is interested in climate variability, atmospheric teleconnection patterns, interaction across tropical ocean basins, and future projections. Her research explores how large-scale sea surface temperatures impact rainfall variability and drought over Australia and other regions. She is particularly interested in how different types of El Niño Southern Oscillation influence atmospheric circulation, regional climate, and interact with other oceanic basins.
