BSc (Hons) (1997) Monash University
Dr Todd Lane was awarded his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Monash University in 2000, having completed his Bachelor degree in 1997. He was Postdoctoral Fellow with the National Center for Atmospheric Research from 2000-02 and a staff Scientist from 2003-05. He is currently a Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow with the School of Earth Sciences, University of Melbourne.
Dr Lane’s primary research focus is on cloud processes. He is internationally recognised as an expert on the generation of atmospheric waves and turbulence by thunderstorms and has made important contributions to many other aspects of mesoscale meteorology, convective cloud dynamics, and atmospheric modelling. His work within the Centre is focused on convection in the maritime continent, and he is using state-of-the-art cloud models to determine the processes that govern the diurnal cycle and variability of clouds and precipitation in this region.
He is the Vice President of the Australian Meteorological Society, the Chair of the American Meteorological Society’s Committee on Mesoscale processes, and an Associate Editor of Monthly Weather Review. He has received awards from the American Meteorological Society, the Australian Academy of Science, the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society, and NASA.
