Clemente studies the diurnal cycle of tropical deep convective clouds and recently explores future climate risk. Clemente’s Ph.D. research at the University of Melbourne and CLEX focused on the role of the diurnally forced convection and its effects on Indonesian heavy rainfall and diurnal variations of cloud populations. He is particularly interested in studying diurnal processes of organized deep convective systems and cloud formation in the tropics. Clemente starts a postdoc at the University of New South Wales in April 2023. His work includes research on future climate risk for New South Wales and applied research for the government of NSW.
