Lisa Alexander, Project Leader
Lisa Alexander
Project Leader

Lisa is an Associate Professor at the Climate Change Research Centre and leads the Extreme Rainfall Research Program of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Her work mainly focuses on the creation of observational datasets and their comparison with state of the art climate models. She started this project through frustration at being unable to easily access, share and update datasets.


Nicholas Herold, Research Associate
Nicholas Herold
Research Associate

Nicholas is interested in both climate extremes and the climate of Earth's past. His work involves interacting with communities around the globe to help utilise their meteorological data to understand trends in extremes in their region. He is also heavily involved in quantifying the uncertainty in observed precipitation extremes between various precipitation products as well as exploring feedbacks and mechanisms related to extremes. He also works to maintain and develop the Climpact software.


Margot Bador, Researcher
Margot Bador

Margot is an early career researcher at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Her main interests are climate extremes, their variability, future changes and underlying mechanisms. She uses climate indices in observations and models to assess how climate extremes could evolve with climate change and investigates the respective role of the anthropogenic influence and natural climate variability on future regional changes.

Web developer

James is a Knowledge Broker with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes and the Monash Climate Change Communications Research Hub. As part of his role, he helps climate scientists collaborate with public and private stakeholders (and each other), as well as building tools to manage, share and visualise climate datasets like Climdex.

Expert Team on Sector-Specific Climate Indices (ET-SCI)

Climpact is developed under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization's Expert Team on Sector-Specific Climate Indices (ET-SCI). You can learn more about the ET-SCI here.
