Severe Weather Scientist
Hi! I am a PhD Graduate from the University of Queensland and Australian Bureau of Meteorology. My dissertation explored the climatological and meteorological aspects of sea breeze interactions with warm-season thunderstorms in South East Queensland, Australia, and is available for open access here. I have contributed to field campaigns and institutions in Australia and internationally, and have completed a Humboldt Fellowship in Bonn, Germany. Currently I am a research scientist at the Bureau of Meteorology, Radar Science and Nowcasting Team. Here I work on improving the prediction of severe weather through observations.
Highlights of my research includes:
- Australian Open Weather Radar Project
- WeatheX Severe Weather Reporting App
- Hail Observation Techniques
- Radar nowcasting of convective storms for the energy industry through Fugro ROAMES
- Analysis of eyewall-mesovorticies in Tropical Cyclone Larry
- Assessment of 2009 Eastern Australia dust storm using ceilometer measurements
- Reconstruction of hydro-climate cycles for southeastern Australia
- Contributed to the Australian Weather Radar Workshops and training schools.
My research has been funded by the UQ Atmospheric Observations Research Group, School of SEES, ROAMES, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Guy Carpenter, Earth Observing Laboratory at the National Centre for Atmospheric Research, the University of Melbourne, National Environmental Science Program, Monash University, ARC Climate Extremes and the Humboldt Foundation.
