Faculty of Science
ARC Centre Ex Climate Extremes

Annette has recently returned to Australia from a 2 year postdoc at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Her postdoctoral research focused on implementing land management practices in climate models to evaluate the impact of land use on climate extremes, with some emphasis on low emission scenarios through the multi-model HAPPI-Land project.

Annette is interested in how we can build resilience to extreme events in our cities by exploiting our existing knowledge of land-atmosphere interactions through conventional and emerging mitigation strategies such as green roofs and cool roofs. She intends to explore this using a high resolution regional climate model that includes urban processes. She would also like to investigate whether we could optimise city expansion for mitigating the impacts of heatwaves without compromising societal needs.
