Dr. Leslie's research interests are concerned with atmospheric dynamics on all scales from mesoscale to planetary scale, severe weather, tropical meteorology, data assimilation computational fluid dynamics, numerical weather prediction and coupled models of the atmosphere, oceans and land surface. Dr. Leslie has had a long career in research and teaching in meteorology, starting at Monash University in 1970 and then continuing at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology Research Center, where he became Senior Principal Research Scientist. In the following two decades he was responsible for the research development and operational implementation of the Short Range Prediction Group. In 1994 he took a chair professorial position at The University of New South Wales, Sydney. The following year he founded and became Director of the Center for Environmental Modeling and Prediction at The University of New South Wales. He has received a number of awards for research and teaching, the most significant of which is the Max Planck Research Prize, awarded in Bonn, Germany, 1994.
