Dr Rosbintarti Kartika LESTARI

Dr Rosbintarti Kartika Lestari’s main research focuses on process understanding of some of the major climate changes projected in the Second National Climate Change Study for Singapore to impact Singapore and the wider Southeast Asia during both Southwest and Northeast monsoon seasons. She is also leading CCRS research effort on decadal climate variability and prediction, with a focus on the implications for Southeast Asia.
