  • Bachelor of Environmental Science, Atmospheric Science, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. (2001-2003)
  • Master (honors) degree (First Class), Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. Title of thesis: Interdecadal sea surface temperature variability in the tropical Pacific Ocean: the role of equatorial and off-equatorial wind stress forcing, oceanic Rossby waves, and the coupled system. (2004-2006)
  • PhD, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. Mechanisms forcing interdecadal variability of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation. (2006-2009)


Shayne uses numerical models of the atmosphere, ocean and coupled system to improve our understanding interannual to multi-decadal scale climate variability. He is particularly interested in the dynamics of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation. His current research focuses on the effect of the South Pacific Convergence Zone on the termination of El Nino events.
