Tess's work focuses on extreme weather, in particular heat waves in Australia and drought in the United Kingdm. Her work explores the dynamics of the large-scale flow during these extreme events. Current work includes an investigation of the sources of error in the short-term prediction of droughts in the UK, on sub-seasonal to seasonal timescales.
