Her current research interests include:

  • Australian and Southern Hemisphere climate variability and change
  • Historical climatology to reconstruct pre-industrial climate variability and extremes
  • Australian climate history
  • Climate reconstructions of the last 1,000 years
  • Citizen science for recovering historical weather observations
