Nerilie Abram uses palaeoclimate records to study how Earth’s climate has behaved in the past to provide a long-term perspective on recent climate change.

She has a particular focus on reconstructing climate variability in the tropical Indian Ocean and Antarctica, and how this impacts Australia’s rainfall patterns.

Her work also involves proxy-model comparisons to assess forcing mechanisms behind natural and anthropogenic climate changes, and to help test climate model performance in historical and last millennium experiments.

Nerilie holds an ARC Queen Elizabeth II fellowship. More information about her research can be found here.
