Informal info about me.
I'm excited to present both a poster and a talk at this year's Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) Conference. The poster will be about my newest research on tropical convection over the Maritime Continent, whereas the talk will be focused on the Model of an idealized Moist Atmosphere (MiMA). The latter will combine both tropical convection, tropospheric turbulence, and stratospheric dynamics, so it's going to cover a lot of material.
I am proud to be one of the worldwide two candidates the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) has chosen to promote for the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Award for Young Scientist. The candidacy is based on my latest publication and CV. You can read more and a interview with me in the WCRP series on promising future leaders in climate science.
My visit of San Francisco is a busy one. Starting off with the invited talk delivered by Ed Gerber about my Model of an idealized Moist Atmosphere on Monday morning, I will present my newest publication as a poster on Tuesday, and will go on to present my colleague Claire Vincent's work on the Madden-Julian Oscillation on Wednesday. Looking forward to some serious science discussions (and also a few nice views of the Bay of course).
My most recent paper about Sudden Stratospheric Warmings has just been published. It uses an idealized GCM to see whether or not SSWs are (once they happen) similar to each other (yes), if there are differences between those that influence the surface weather and those that don't (yes), and if we can identify an entirely different "species" of SSWs which propagate (no).

I've written a small piece about the Dos and Don'ts in scientific visualisation, with the example of my newest addition to my website, Weather Alive. If you'd like to know more about how such things can be done, go have a read.
After months of working on it every now and then, I am proud to reveal my very own weather page. You'll be able to look at the cloudiness and winds over the entire globe, or look into more detail in one of several regions. There's also a time picker, where you can travel into the past (sorry, no earlier than 1. August 2016), or the future! If your browser supports it, you can even look at it in 3D and use your mouse to navigate everything. Last but not least, have a look at some of history's most impressive weather events - in 3D of course. Go enjoy the weather here!
The School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment Sciences as invited me as speaker to their seminar series. I'll try to do my best and give a very general talk, while still presenting some of my recent research. Of course, there will also be lots of animations. See the announcement here.
I'm having the pleasure of presenting my earlier work to the community of my new workplace, the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne. It's a general talk, hopefully understandable to the non-specialist, and of course, with lots of animations. See the announcement here.
After five years in the US, I am excited to start my new position at the University of Melbourne's School of Earth Sciences, where I will be looking at convection over the Maritime Continent together with Assoc. Prof. Todd Lane.
I am happy to visit Prof. Geoff Vallis in Exeter, UK, for a week before going off to new adventures. The group in Exeter has become an important user of my climate models, so it is great to catch up on new ideas and applications of these models, and also further developing projects.
Prof. Ed Gerber will present a talk about my work at the SPARC Workshop on "Stratospheric Change and its Role for Climate Prediction“ (SHARP) The workshop focuses on recent research in stratospheric dynamics, stratosphere-troposphere coupling, and stratospheric water vapor and ozone.
