Career Summary

Biography

Dr Danielle Verdon-Kidd is a lecturer/hydroclimatologist in the Environmental and Climate Change Research Group (ECCRG) within the School of Environmental and Life Sciences. Danielle’s primary research focuses on studying the drivers of climate variability and change in Australia and investigating how to use these insights to improve natural resource management. Of particular interest to Danielle is integrating information from the palaeoclimate records, the instrumental records and Global Climate Models to better assess climate driven risks. Danielle has also carried out a number of projects, within the consulting environment, aimed at helping clients to assess their vulnerability to climate variability/change and their ability to adapt to climate driven risks. Danielle has experience in characterising climate variability and change, hydrological modelling, stochastic modelling, statistical analysis, drought risk analysis, water resources management, computer programming and GIS/spatial analysis.
