Bachelor of Science (Hons) Atmospheric Science, Mathematics, 2008. Monash University. Phd Atmospheric Science, 2014, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)


I am a lecturer in the School of Earth, Atmosphere & Environment at Monash University and an associate investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. My research interests are in atmospheric dynamics and climate change. I am particularly interested in the influence of cloud and precipitation processes on atmospheric circulations of a wide range of spatial scales. Understanding the role of such moist processes in determining the climate is an important step toward predicting the possible impacts of human-induced global warming. My particular research interests include: * Understanding the large-scale tropical overturning circulation * Earth's monsoons in the past, present and future * Tropical convection in different climates * Precipitation extremes under global warming * The entropy budget of a convecting atmosphere
