Hamish’s research is focused on tropical meteorology, mesoscale meteorology, severe local storms and numerical modelling.

He is particularly interested in the structure, dynamics and climatology of atmospheric convection on a variety of scales, ranging from climate controls on tropical cyclones to small-scale processes governing shallow convection.

A large component of his research is on the response of tropical cyclone frequency and intensity to climate variability and change.

Hamish also employs a wide range of tools as part of this work including observational data sets, cloud-resolving models, single-column models and large eddy simulations.
