Dr. Christopher O’Reilly

Royal Society University Research Fellow

I am a scientist who is interested in the dynamics of the Earth’s climate system. My research broadly focuses on understanding mechanisms of climate variability and change, as well as the predictability of future climate, across a range of timescales.
