Welcome to Christian's Home Page

Hello and welcome to my homepage. I am a professor in Atmospheric Science at the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. I am currently also the Deputy Director of the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science . My research focusses on computer models of Earth' atmosphere as they are used to make weather forecast, predictions of the next season as well as simulations of our current and future climate. In particular I am working on the representation of clouds and thunderstorms in such models. These play a major role in the way energy and water are cycled through the atmosphere and hence are crucial ingredients of the climate system.
