Claire Carouge is the leader of the Computational Modelling Systems (CMS) team at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLeX). She coordinates the efforts of the team members distributed over the five nodes of the Centre.
In parallel, Dr Carouge provides the modelling support for the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) atmospheric regional model and CSIRO Atmosphere, Biosphere and Land Exchange (CABLE) land surface model at the Centre of Excellence. As such she has coupled CABLE to WRF via the integration of CABLE into the Land Information System (LIS). She has also developed new diagnostics in WRF required for simulations for the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX). She now maintains, keeps up-to-date and documents a stand-alone modified WRF model and the CABLE-LIS-WRF coupled model.
Dr Carouge is also developing a proper suite of tests for CABLE in collaboration with the CABLE development team at CSIRO. She supports researchers using and developing the CABLE and WRF models at the Centre.
