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

I coordinate and teach CLIM1001/GENS0401 - Introduction to Climate Change. This is an online-only course for first year undergraduate students in Science and other areas. It gives you an introduction to climate impacts, climate law, climate psychology, general circulation of the atmosphere and oceans, paleo climate, future projections, among other topics. The course covers the review process in the IPCC, while encouraging you to think critically and work individually and in group.
