Biography

Laura works in the School of Mathematical Sciences in the Faculty of Science at Monash University as a Research Fellow.

Laura O'Brien has just joined Monash Weather and Climate as a postdoctoral fellow in the CoE. She recently completed her PhD at University College Dublin with Prof. Frandeacute;dandeacute;ric Dias, the title of her thesis being Mathematical Modelling of Tsunamis due to Landslides. In the CoE, Laura will work with Michael Reeder on the effect of Rossby waves on low-frequency variability, extratropical cyclones and extremes.
