Honours Atmospheric Physics projects
My research interest is in remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere from ground to around 20 km. If you are interested in a weather or radar related project please get in touch! Some potential projects in 2024 are:
1) Using various meteorological instruments to examine local weather events
2) Comparing wind measurements from ground based radars to measurements made from space
3) Examining the contribution of wind measurements to the Fire Behaviour Index
4) Processing radar returns from bats

My research is mostly concerned with remote sensing of the lower atmosphere, with a particular interest in precipitation and winds.  I hold an adjunct position with the University, while working as Senior Scientist for ATRAD Pty Ltd, an Adelaide based radar research, development and manufacturing company.  Much of my research is focused on producing state of the art software to run on wind profiling radars, with some fun side projects.  Some of my current research topics are:

- comparing ground based atmospheric variable measurements to those from space

- adapting wind measurement techniques to new or modified hardware

- collaborating with Bureau of Meteorology colleagues on data ingestion in numerical weather prediction

- incorporating machine learning into atmospheric sensing

I am happy to create and supervise student projects at any level, and can in some cases provide industry experience.  If you have an interest in atmospheric remote sensing please get in touch.
