Ailie is a DECRA fellow in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment at Monash University. She has previously completed two postdocs at the University of Melbourne, Australia and at the University of Washington, USA where she worked on problems associated with climate variability and change in the Southern Hemisphere. ​Her research interests include identifying and understanding variations and trends in Australian climate extremes; investigating the role of multi-decadal scale climate variability in the Australian region; and characterising pre-instrumental climate variations in Australia and Antarctica using palaeoclimate data.
