This topic is where you can introduce yourself to the other members of the ESM Working Group.
Feel free to put as much information as you like, but it might be good to have a brief introduction to your background, where you are now, specific areas of interest you might have in Earth System Modelling, and on what you are interested in collaborating in the future.
Hi! I’m Aidan, the ACCESS-NRI liaison for the ESM Working Group.
I’m also the Model Release Team Lead at ACCESS-NRI, which means creating systems to make sure all the models have a high quality, consistent testing framework, to ensure high consistently high quality models for the community. I’m also responsible for ensuring the models will be easy to use, discoverable and hopefully easy to contribute back to.
High quality, consistent and easily discoverable provenance information is also a super-important part of model support, and so something I’m keen to build into all our systems at ACCESS-NRI.
Before joining ACCESS-NRI I was part of the CMS team at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX), and before that the CMS team at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science( ARCCSS). My primary role in both centres was supporting ocean models.
Hi all, my name is Wilma, I’m a research fellow at the ARC Centre for Climate Extremes. I currently work with ACCESS-CM2 to understand the role of ocean resolution on the coupled system. My background is in ocean modelling with a particular interest in the Southern Ocean.
Hello, I am Laurie, one of the ESM working group co-chair. I am Associate Prof. at the CCRC, UNSW. My research focuses on understanding the impacts of changes in oceanic circulation on the climate and carbon cycle. One of the models we use in my group is the ACCESS-ESM1.5.
Hi! I’m Shayne, one of the ESM working group co-chairs. I am Associate Prof. at Monash University. My research focuses on understanding drivers of climate variability and change, including the major modes of tropical climate variability and their climatic impacts. I have used ACCESS v1.3, ACCESS ESM1.5 and ACCESS CM2 in my work to date, and often also carry out AMIP style AGCM experiments and forced OGCM experiments.
Hi everyone. I am Tilo and a co-chair of this working group. I am a research scientist at CSIRO based in Aspendale VIC and my main research interests are focused on land carbon cycle interactions and investigating the role of the terrestrial biosphere in mitigation and managing carbon. I have been leading the development of ACCESS-ESM1.5 and I am using the model for a variety of applications, for example, to study the implications of potential temperature overshoots, the reversibility of the climate and carbon cycle and climate stabilisation at different global warming levels.
Hi all, I’m Eun-Pa, another co-chair of this ESM working group. I’m a research scientist at the Bureau of Meteorology. My research has been focused on variabilities, interactions, and long-term changes of the large-scale circulations such as ENSO, IOD, SAM, and the Antarctic stratospheric polar vortex that act as sources of predictability for the Australian climate variations. Using the ACCESS-S (ACCESS-Seasonal), the Bureau’s seasonal forecast system, I conduct forecast sensitivity experiments to atmosphere vs ocean initial conditions to understand their relative contributions to climate extremes. The research version of the ACCESS-S is available on gadi.
Hi everyone, I am Jo Brown and I’m a senior lecturer at University of Melbourne in the School of Geography, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. I am interested in running ACCESS-ESM1.5 for palaeoclimate simulations including Holocene and glacial climates and freshwater “hosing” experiments under past climate conditions. I have previously run a range of models including HadCM3, FOAM and MUGCM as well as ACCESS-ESM1.5.
