Science
Climate Change Research Centre

I am a Research Scientist at the Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). I am a research associate for the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS) and an associate investigator for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLeX). 

My research involves the use of atmospheric / ocean and coupled climate models to understand the dynamics of large-scale atmospheric circulation and its influence on Southern Hemisphere climate, including Antarctic sea-ice. I also have a keen interest in tropical cyclones and how they may be impacted by climate change.

Areas that I work / interested in :

a) Tropical - extratropical teleconnections

b) Climate variability

c) Coupled extreme events

d) Climate Policy

e) Environment, Social and Governance (ESG)
