I am a lecturer in climate science and science communication at the School of Earth Science. My career highlights so far include going behind the scenes at the British Science Museum, working with a farmer in Armidale to rescue his grandfather’s weather diaries, presenting videos on climate science for the Bureau of Meteorology, and being part of the winning team for the 2014 Eureka Prize for Interdisciplinary Research.I am a regular on Einstein A Go Go on Melbourne's 3RRR radio, the Editor in Chief of the Royal Meteorological Society’s Geoscience Data Journal and co-Editor in Chief of the Bulletin of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society.
