Dr Henley is a Research Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne working on the VicDRIP project investigating decadal climate variations, megadrought risk and hydrological impacts using multi-proxy palaeoclimate records, observed data and climate model simulations. He is the data manager for Aus2k, the Australasian component of Pages2k. Dr Henley received his PhD in hydrology and climate variability from the University of Newcastle (Australia) in 2012. He has worked on a number of academic and industry-based projects investigating hydro-climatic variability and water resource system performance, including hydrological modelling underpinning regional water planning. Dr Henley’s research interests include: decadal climate variability and climate change, the climate of the past 2000 years, the evaluation of large-scale climate circulation modes in climate models, hydrological modelling for water supply planning and the impacts and palaeoclimate context of anthropogenic climate change.
