About the presenter
My primary interests are coupled dynamical seasonal marine modelling applications. My current research involves dynamical seasonal forecasting for coral reef and fisheries management, including Great Barrier Reef coral bleaching risk, Australian southern bluefin tuna fisheries, and Tasmanian salmon and Queensland prawn aquaculture. I'm currently leading a project to migrate, upgrade and expand the operational seasonal coral bleaching risk forecasts from POAMA to the new ACCESS-S system. Additional projects include devloping forecast products for NZ fisheries (collaboration with NIWA) and investigating oceanographic drivers on Queensland scallop production.
I have also led projects to develop new cutting edge seasonal prediction SST-based and sea level products for coral bleaching risk in the Western Pacific under PACCSAP. This work builds on previous research and development of the first dynamical operational forecasts
