Variability and driving mechanisms of climate extremes

Dr Lisa Alexander completed her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Applied Mathematics at Queens University in Northern Ireland in 1995 and 1998 respectively. She was a research scientist for the Met Office Hadley Centre in the Climate Variability Group from 1998 to 2006, spending her last year on secondment at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.  She completed her PhD at Monash University in 2009, winning the Mollie Holman medal for best doctoral thesis. Since then she has been a senior researcher with the Climate Change Research Centre at UNSW.

Dr Alexander’s early career research has concentrated on understanding the variability and driving mechanisms of climate extremes. Her primary work is improving understanding of observed changes in these events using multiple research tools ranging from station observations to climate model output. Much of her work has been focused on the creation of high quality global datasets and their comparison with state of the art climate models. Of particular significance is Dr Alexander’s work on the production and assessment of global datasets of temperature and rainfall extremes under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI). She has led regional capacity building and development workshops on behalf of the ETCCDI in Jamaica, Morocco, Turkey, Vietnam and Indonesia. Dr Alexander also chairs the WMO Commission for Climatology Expert Team on Climate Risk and Sector specific Indices.
