Biography: Dr Ailie Gallant is a Senior Lecturer and climate scientist in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment at Monash University. Her work seeks to characterise and understand climate variability and change, primarily for the Australia and Southern Hemisphere regions. Most of her research relates to drought. She has developed estimates of pre-instrumental drought variability in the last 1000 years using palaeoclimate information, and has characterised changes to drought on the Australian continent. Her current research has an emphasis on examining the atmospheric processes that cause droughts and the processes that break droughts, including, counterintuitively, connections between drought and extreme rainfall.
