Biography

I was born in Melbourne, Australia and have lived in Melbourne all my life. I am interested in the weather and how it affects all areas of society on a daily basis. I completed a Bachelor of Science last year at Monash University and this year I have begun my honours at the same university.

THESIS: What is the thunderstorm climatology of south - eastern Australia?

My honours topic will involve creating a thunderstorm climatology for south - eastern Australia for aviation applications. This will be achieved by using a data set from weather radars in this region. The creation of a thunderstorm climatology for south - eastern Australia will possibly assist the future prediction of thunderstorms. The thunderstorm climatology for south - eastern Australia will be able to describe the occurrence and depth of thunderstorms in the atmosphere. This aligns with the Centre's goal as it may improve the skill in capturing climate extremes relating to thunderstorms.
