Alison originally came from a physics/chemistry background, completing a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Nanotechnology. But a fascination with the weather eventually got the better of her, and in 2010 she started work at the Bureau of Meteorology - first as a weather forecaster before moving into climate prediction, and more recently, forecast verification.

She is passionate about understanding our weather and climate and finding ways to better communicate this information to others.
