Professor; ARC Future Fellow; Chief Investigator for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes, Australian National University

My research focuses on how the Earth’s climate has behaved over the last millennium, and what that tells us about the climate changes we are seeing now. The past climate records that I develop come from corals, caves and ice cores, and I combine these with climate model data to study climate changes.

My research is supported by a Future Fellowship and Discovery Projects from the Australian Research Council. I'm also a Chief Investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes and I'm actively involved in a number of the international reconstruction teams for the Past Global Changes 2k projects.
