About the presenter
Grant is currently working in the seasonal prediction team on marine applications of seasonal forecasts, specifically for coral bleaching risk management. This involves model skill assessment using various metrics, and develop useful coral bleaching products in consultation with key stakeholders (eg. GBRMPA).
Grant also is responsible for the high resolution wave hindcast monthly which provides wave data around Australia and south west Pacific Islands Countries.
Previously, at the Bureau, Grant worked on the Climate and Ocean Support Programme for the Pacific (COSPPac) as an Oceanographer. As part of this role, he was primarily involved with the development of ocean products that were applicable for the Pacific, as well as training Pacific met staff and stakeholders in ocean science and applications.
