Personal profile


I am currently an Associate Professor (Climate) at Monash University in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment. My research straddles the boundary of theory, observations and modelling and seeks to understand climate variability and change, with a primary focus on the Australasian region. To date, my research has focused on:

  • El Nino-Southern Oscillation dynamics, predictability and teleconnections
  • Tropical Pacific Decadal Variability (TPDV) mechanisms and impacts
  • Paleo-climate reconstructions
  • Tropical Basin (or pan-tropical) Interactions
  • Sea level variability and rise
