Gab is interested in models of natural systems and especially trying to understand when models are useful for making inferences about a natural system. He works primarily with climate and land surface models, but also hydrology and ecology models.  He uses a range of observations in model evaluation, benchmarking and uncertainty assessment through ensemble modelling, and has focused on standardisation of evaluation internationally and assessment of model dependence. He leads the development of the Protocol for the Analysis of Land Surface models (PALS) web application, is a member of the GEWEX Global Land-Atmosphere System Study panel, chairs the OzEWEX Model Evaluation and Benchmarking working group and a member of the management committee for the Community Atmosphere Biosphere Land Exchange (CABLE) model, Australia's community land surface model.
