Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Newcastle

Dr Andrew Magee is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre for Water, Climate and Land (CWCL). Andrew is engaged in cutting-edge Pacific climate research with a particular focus on investigating the role and impact of climate variability and change on tropical cyclone activity in the Australian and southwest Pacific regions. By looking at the dynamics of Indo-Pacific climate variability, Andrew’s research continues to better our understanding of tropical cyclone variability in the region. In addition, Andrew is interested in natural peril risk modelling, climate adaptation and how the use of weather related traditional knowledge can be used to improve current tropical cyclone outlooks for the Pacific region.
