Pep Canadell is a chief research scientist in CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere, and the Executive Director of the Global Carbon Project, an international research project to study the interactions between the carbon cycle, climate, and human activities. Pep focuses on collaborative and integrative research to study global and regional aspects of the carbon cycle and other biogeochemical cycles, the size and vulnerability of earth carbon pools, and pathways to climate stabilization. He publishes in the field of global ecology and earth system sciences. Dr Joëlle Gergis is an award-winning climate scientist and writer from the Australian National University. She is an internationally recognised expert in Australian and Southern Hemisphere climate variability and change; based in the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Her research focuses on providing a long-term historical context for assessing recently observed climate variability and extremes. In 2013 Dr Gergis was awarded an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) fellowship, and her team won the 2014 Eureka Prize for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Scientific Research - informally known as the 'Oscars of Australian Science'. In 2015 Dr Gergis was awarded the Dean's Award for Excellence in Research in the Faculty of Science at the University of Melbourne. In February 2018, she was selected to serve as a lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report - a global, state-of-the art review of climate change science. In August 2018 she was appointed to the Climate Council, Australia's leading independent body providing expert advice to the Australian public on climate change and policy. Her book, Sunburnt Country: The future and history of climate change in Australia, is now available through Melbourne University Publishing. In November 2019 Dr Gergis received the 2019 AMOS Science Outreach Award, a national prize for science communication awarded by the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS), Australia’s peak professional body for climate science. A/Prof. Malte Meinshausen is Director of the Australian-German College of Climate & Energy Transitions at The University of Melbourne, and Senior Researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. Mark is a principal research scientist with CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere, CSIRO’s program coordinator for the Australian Climate Service, and leads the Offshore Renewable Energy Systems Research Program of the Blue Economy CRC. Mark is a meteorological oceanographer with over 20 years of postdoctoral experience, recognised internationally by his research investigating climatological variability and change in marine wind and wave conditions, and the implications for marine and coastal industry, infrastructure, communities and environments. He occupies several national and international roles spanning these interests. He has over 15 years of research spanning offshore renewable energy resources and sector development in Australia, translating science to industry. Michael Grose's research focuses on climate projections and communication for southeast Australia, as well as climate model evaluation and making climate projections for Pacific Island nations.
