Zebedee Nicholls is a PhD Researcher at the University of Melbourne's Climate & Energy College. He leads the Reduced Complexity Model Intercomparison Project (RCMIP, see rcmip.org) and is a contributing author to the Working Group 1 contribution to the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report. His work has focussed on the development and evaluation of reduced-complexity climate models, particularly those used for evaluating the climate implications of different emissions scenarios. He is also interested in the remaining carbon budget, particularly the implications of different choices about how to calculate it and making output from complex climate models easier to work with (see cmip6.science.unimelb.edu.au/). To facilitate this work and enhance reproducibility, he is committed to developing open-source scientific software and contributes to a number of projects (see github.com/znicholls and gitlab.com/znicholls).
