Professor Malcolm Thomas McCulloch FRS
Premier’s Fellow, ARC Centre of Excellence Coral Reef Studies, School of Earth and Environment, University of Western Australia.
Malcolm McCulloch is a distinguished isotope geochemist who, over many years, has made highly original contributions to our understanding of the Earth and early solar system. Over the past decade he has trailblazed with the development of innovative new indicators of climate change preserved in coral skeletons. Most recently he has been able to demonstrate beyond doubt the link between the degradation of the Great Barrier Reef and the build up of human activity in Australia following colonisation.
