Climate Change Research Centre

My personal webpage can be accessed here.

I am interested in abrupt climate change events as well as thresholds and feedbacks in the climate system. I use Earth System Climate Models in conjunction with palaeoclimate records to improve our understanding of the basic mechanisms underlying climate variability and climate change, particularly in the context of terrestrial biogeochemical cycles and ocean circulation.

I am the Director of the Climate Change Research Centre, University of New South Wales, Australia. I am also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Victoria, Canada, a Courtesy Faculty Member at the Oregon State University, USA, an Associate Investigator of the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes and a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of Past Global Changes (PAGES).
