I am a professor in Atmospheric Science at the School of Mathematical Sciences of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. My research focuses on computer models of Earth' atmosphere as they are used to make weather forecast, predictions of the next season as well as simulations of our current and future climate.
In particular I am working on the representation of clouds and thunderstorms in such models. These play a major role in the way energy and water are cycled through the atmosphere and hence are crucial ingredients of the climate system.
