Dr Jack Katzfey – Project leader
 Dr Katzfey specialises in the use of climate modelling tools, in the development of high-resolution regional climate projections. He has managed the application of these tools in various uses including weather forecast for the Australian Olympic sailing team in 2012 in Weymouth, UK and for the Alinghi America’s Cup Team from 2002-2010. For this project, Dr Katzfey has led the team in the development of updated climate projections for Vietnam and provided training on the use and application of CSIRO’s Conformal Cubic Atmospheric (CCAM) Model. For further information on Dr Katzfey’s experiences, please refer to: http://www.csiro.au/en/Organisation-Structure/Divisions/Marine--Atmospheric-Research/JackKatzfey.aspx
Dr Kim Chi Nguyen – Analysis of climate projections
Dr Nguyen specialises in the analysis of results from high-resolution climate models, particularly, changes in tropical cyclones and monsoons in South-East Asian region. Recently she has supervised a group of early career scientist from Vietnam in exploring tropical cyclone detection techniques for Vietnam. For this project, Dr Nguyen has worked with our Vietnamese collaborators, analysing results from the climate models to develop regional climate scenarios for Vietnam.
Dr Peter Hoffmann – Dynamic downscaling and analysis of climate projections
Dr Hoffmann, who studied at the University of Hamburg (Germany), brings his experiences in working with high-resolution climate models to our team. Specialising in running regional climate models, he has assisted in the running and analysing of results from CSIRO’s Conformal Cubic Atmospheric Model. During his time on the project Dr Hoffmann has assist in the supervision of early-career scientists in running CCAM and investigating the impacts of climate change on heatwaves and droughts in Vietnam. Aside from researching climate science, Dr Hoffmann is also passionate about experiencing climate extremes in person, through his “storm-chasing” adventures.
Dr John McGregor – Dynamic downscaling
Dr McGregor is an expert at CSIRO who specialises in the development of climate projection models. He has been working in this area for over two decades, developing both regional and global climate models during his career. He developed DARLAM, a regional-specific atmospheric model which provided climate projections for Australia by downscaling simulations from Global Climate Models. This was followed, over 10 years ago, by his development of the Conformal Cubic Atmospheric Model (CCAM), a Global Model which can provide higher resolution over any selected region. Dr McGregor has also worked extensively on model parameterization improvements, in order to properly simulate rainfall details within CCAM. Dr McGregor has worked on this project in setting up the simulations and assisted in their analysis.
Dr Suppiah Ramasamy – Analysis of current and future climate drivers
Dr Ramasamy has over two decades of experiences in the field of investigating the impacts of climate change on key climate features such as monsoons, tropical cyclones and heatwaves. He has worked on a number of significant projects, reviewing impacts in Australia and Southeast Asia. In addition to this work, Dr Ramasamy is also is also experienced in assessing the performance of Global Climate Models (GCMs), particularly in providing recommendations for GCM selections in high-resolution projects. For this project, Dr Ramasamy has contributed his knowledge on climate feature analysis and GCM selection.
Dr John Church - Regional sea-level projections
Dr Church is a renowned expert in the field of Ocean-Climate science, a key contributor to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) work on oceanography and climate change. As part of this project Dr Church has managed the development of Sea Level Rise (SLR) projections for Vietnam. For further information on his background and achievements see: http://www.cmar.csiro.au/sealevel/sl_about_us.html#church
Dr Didier Monselesan - Regional sea-level projections
Dr Monselesan comes from a background in atmospheric science and is experience in oceanography, particularly with SLR research. He has worked closely with Dr Church to deliver the SLR projections for this project.
Dr Alexander Smajgl – Assessing response options
 Dr Smajgl is an expert in Environmental Economics and experienced in working throughout the Mekong Delta region.  His work incorporates participatory processes and “whole-of-system” approaches in the development of decision-support tools. He has worked with various Governments within the Mekong Delta to better understand the relationship between “water-food-energy” decisions. As part of this project Dr Smajgl has worked with the Vietnamese institutions to explore key concepts behind effective integrated assessment methods, assessment needs and data preparation requirements. This work has started the process to ensure that climate projection data developed is integrated into a framework for decision-making in Vietnam.
Mr Tim Erwin – Communication of climate projections
Mr Erwin applies his web development expertises in formulating a web-based interactive tool for the dissemination of climate projection data for this project. The Climate Futures tool provides a useful snapshot of the key outputs from this project and guides users through the extraction of this data in a manner which is most useful to their needs. 
Ms Hoang Anh Cat – Communication of climate projections
Ms Cat is experienced in regional development, she has engaged with many rural communities in assisting their understanding of and planning for, climate change. She brings a diversity of experiences from her consulting and Non-Government Organisation (NGO) background to her communication role on this project. As a Vietnamese Australian and Environmental Engineer Ms Cat has a keen interest in the impacts of climate changes on communities, particularly in Vietnam.
