Personal profile


Julie moved to the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment in February 2016 after more than a decade at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. She spent a number of years at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in the United States and still maintains strong collaborative ties with colleagues there. Her research interests include climate extremes, decadal variability and the role of the Antarctic ozone hole in shifting storm tracks.
