I am a Professor at the Climate Change Research Centre and an Chief Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes at the University of New South Wales. My research involves general issues of water cycle processes over land, and how we can change them, largely through changes in land use and changes in climate. I focus at the regional (or watershed) scale and study processes including river flow, evaporation/transpiration, water vapor transport and precipitation.

The main tools of my research are models including regional climate models, land surface and hydrology models. Of course modelling needs to be informed by data and along with in-situ data, I use satellite data and analysis of stable isotopes of water.

I am the lead modeller on the NSW/ACT Regional Climate Modelling project (NARCliM). This project is producing an ensemble of regional climate projections over south-east Australia for use in impacts and adaptation research.

I am co-chair of the GEWEX Hydroclimate Panel which is a project of the Global Energy and Water EXchanges (GEWEX) project. GEWEX is run by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
