I joined the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy and Disaster Solutions and the ANU Research School of Earth Sciences as a research fellow since October 2022. My current research focuses on better understanding the physical mechanisms and prediction of tropical cyclogenesis, intensity, trajectory, and tropical cyclone interventions using coupled atmosphere-ocean models.

My PhD research focused on investigating characteristics of landfalling tropical cyclones (i.e., intensity, sizes, speed, track, precipitation structure) and their physical impacts in Southeast Asia from the past into the warming future using observations, satellite-inferred data, and pseudo-global warming numerical simulations.

Prior to my PhD, I worked as a broadcast meteorologist and science communicator. I produced disaster breaking news series to warn people of natural disasters, help prevent losses and raise awareness on preparedness and self-protection. I joined the World Meteorological Organization's global media campaigns to make climate sciences more accessible to communities.
