Personal profile


I am currently a Lecturer (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 and predictability
  • Pacific Basin decadal variability
  • Paleo-climate reconstructions
  • Interbasin connectivity
  • sea level variability and rise
