Tess's expertise lies in the science of weather producing systems, with a particular focus on heat waves and drought, through the examination of the large-scale atmospheric conditions and processes underlying extreme weather. She also researches the connections between extreme weather and tropical-extratropical or stratosphere-troposphere interactions.
