Research Overview


  • >I study the climate of the past to better understand present‐day climate, particularly tropical climate and ocean‐atmosphere processes such as El Niño. This research improves our ability to forecast climate change and addresses key questions on the origins of natural climate variations.

     

     

    • ·      El Niño in a changing climate: novel long-term perspectives from Pacific corals and model simulations (ARC Future Fellowship FT40100286)
    • ·      PAGES Ocean2k Phase 2, which aims to place observed historical marine conditions into the context of climatic variations over the past 2000 years.   http://www.pages-igbp.org/workinggroups/ocean2k/
    • ·      IODP drilling in the Great Barrier Reef: unlocking the causes, rates and consequences of abrupt sea level and climate change (ARC Discovery Project DP1094001)
