Research Interests:

  • Organised tropical convection, with a focus on the Madden-Julian oscillation
  • Air-sea interactions and their role in sub-seasonal predictability
  • Regional climate variability and change, particularly in Australia
  • Improving the ability of weather and climate models to simulate the above

Research Projects:

  • NERC Independent Research Fellowship (2015-20): "The role of air-sea interactions in sub-seasonal variability", including development of Multi-Column KPP ocean model and its applications to atmospheric models.
  • Drivers of Regional East Asian Monsoon variability (DREAM, 2015-18): Understanding and simulating the mechanisms that control variability and change in the East Asian hydrological cycle
  • Bay of Bengal Boundary-Layer Experiment (BoBBLE, 2015-20): Examining how atmosphere-ocean interactions in the Bay of Bengal influence South Asian monsoon weather systems.
  • Ocean Dynamics as a Driver of Seasonal to Decadal European Atmospheric Variability (ODYSEA, 2015-18): Analysing the effect of ocean circulation and air-sea coupling on quasi-stationary Rossby waves over Europe.
  • Future Weather: Examining how air-sea coupling affects projections of changes in regional weather and climate extremes.

Postdoctoral & graduate student supervision

  • Claudia Stephan, working on the CSSP-China DREAM project on large-scale, coupled atmosphere-ocean drivers of East Asian hydrological variability.
  • Liang Guo, working on the CSSP-China DREAM project on local and regional sources of moisture for the East Asian water cycle.
  • Simon Peatman, working on the effect of atmosphere-ocean interactions in the Indian summer monsoon as part of the BoBBLE project.

  • Gabriel Wolf, working on the ODYSEA project on understanding the generation of quasi-stationary Rossby waves and their effects on European climate.
  • Josh Talib, Ph.D. student working on frameworks to diagnose the position and intensity of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone, using idealized simulations (e.g., aquaplanets).
  • Karl JohariChan, Ph.D. student working across the INCOMPASS and BoBBLE projects to understand the role of land-atmosphere-ocean interactions in the generation of South Asian monsoon convection.
