Dr Peter Gibson completed his PhD at the Climate Change Research Centre in September 2017 under the supervision of Dr Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick and Prof Andrew Pitman. Peter's thesis was titled 'Heatwaves in Australia: model evaluation, drivers and future projections'. This research focused on better understanding the drivers of heatwaves in different regions of Australia in terms of atmospheric circulation and land surface conditions. Climate model data was also analyzed in terms of how well models represent the relevant drivers and how these drivers are projected to change across the 21st century.


As of November 2017, Dr Gibson is working as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at NASA/Caltech Jet Propulsion Lab in the California, USA.
