''Can ‘cli-fi’ actually make a difference? A climate scientist’s perspective''


Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick

Research Fellow, UNSW
Sarah’s work focuses on Australian climate extremes. Her work explores observed trends in droughts and heat waves and estimating the uncertainty associated with observations. Sarah is also working on determining the natural and human components of observed regional climate change in Australia, using both observed and climate model data. She will also investigate the combined affects of natural variability and increased greenhouse forcings on changes in climate extremes throughout the 21st Century.
