I undertake research to improve the scientific basis for improved climate predictions on seasonal and climate-change timescales. I also have a continuing involvement in epidemiological studies linking climate and health. I have been involved in the research underlying the Victorian heatwave alert system, and in ways to improve the prediction of variations in bushfire activity from year-to-year. I have also specialised in the monitoring and forecasting of changes in extreme weather and climate events including droughts.
