Research interests

Climate drivers and teleconnections with extreme weather

About

I'm a Climate Extremes Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne. The focus of my research will be the attribution of extreme events to human-induced climate change. I am also interested in climate variability and the time of emergence for an anthropogenic signal in the climate. Before moving to Melbourne I was a PhD student at the University of New South Wales researching extreme rainfall variability in Australia.
