I am originally from the United States, but moved to Canberra to research solar forecasting here at the ANU.  I have always loved the weather, so researching meteorology was a natural fit for me.  In addition to my PhD work, I enjoy teaching/demonstrating in the Climatology, Weather and Earth Sciences classes within the Fenner School.  I moved here with my wife Teddi and dog Tilly and we are sincerely enjoying our time in Australia!


Research interests

Thesis description

Using power output data from rooftop solar panels around the Australian Capital Territory, I am researching ways to produce forecasts of their energy generation.
