Thesis Title

The impacts of climate variability and change on the severe thunderstorm environment in Australia


John received his PhD investigating the impacts of anthropogenic climate change on severe thunderstorms. As part of his research he has produced the first analysis of the relationship between severe thunderstorms and their associated environments and a new climatology of these environments for the period 1979-2011. He is currently exploring the application of the environmental relationship to climate models for the late 20th and 21st centuries.

He is now working for International Research Institute for Climate and Society in the US
