New paper published in PNAS

Our new paper showing that the potential for intense thunderstorms increases rapidly under global warming across the tropics and subtropics has just been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA. For a summary of the results, see this piece in The Conversation.

Abstract submission open for Understanding & Modelling Atmospheric Processes (UMAP) 2018

The 2nd Pan-GASS meeting: Understanding & Modelling Atmospheric Processes is to be held in Lorne, Victoria, Australia, between the 26 Feb-2 Mar 2018. The UMAP meeting aims to bring together NWP and climate scientists, observationalists, and modellers to discuss the key issues of atmospheric science. It is supported by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science and the GASS (Global Atmospheric System Studies) panel.

About me

I am a lecturer in the School of Earth, Atmosphere & Environment at Monash University and an associate investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science.

My research interests are in atmospheric dynamics and climate change. I am particularly interested in the influence of cloud and precipitation processes on atmospheric circulations of a wide range of spatial scales. Understanding the role of such moist processes in determining the climate is an important step toward predicting the possible impacts of human-induced global warming.

My particular research interests include:


I currently have positions open for PhD students and honours students to work on a range of projects broadly concerning the dynamics of the tropical atmosphere. Some potential projects are outlined here, but please contact me if you are interested in working in my group.
