Associate Professor Andréa Taschetto

I am an Associate Professor at the Climate Change Research Centre, UNSW, and a Chief Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes.

 

My research focuses on climate variability, ocean-atmosphere interaction, large-scale atmospheric dynamics and global teleconnection patterns. I am interested in how the tropical oceans affect regional climate from seasonal to multidecadal timescales and beyond, including future changes to increased greenhouse warming. In particular, I use climate models, reanalysis and observations to understand the physical processes by which climate drivers, such as the El Niño – Southern Oscillation, affect the atmospheric circulation, temperature and precipitation in the present, past and future climate.
