My research has a focus on understanding variability and long-term changes in weather and climate extremes, by combining observational datasets and climate models. I am particularly interested in understanding the processes and mechanisms in the climate system that drive or amplify extremes, and to identify predictability of climate extremes. I also have a strong interest in developing high-quality observational datasets of climate extremes, suitable to investigate long-term trends and variability.
