Recent appointments: Head, School of Earth, Atmospheric & Life Sciences, University of Wollongong

Congratulations to Guang Shi, currently an Alfred Deakin Professor and personal chair of Palaeontology at Deakin University, where he has previously served as Head of School. Professor Shi’s own research investigates marine invertebrate fossils to explore environmental change through geological time, and he has published widely in areas of geology, stratigraphy, sedimentology, palaeontology and biogeography.

Professor Shi will be moving to the University of Wollongong in early 2019, to take up the position of Head of the new School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences. The School’s academic community includes archaeology, atmospheric chemistry, earth surface processes, ecology, ecotoxicology, environmental sciences, geology, marine biology and spatial sciences.

The School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences provides an outstanding opportunity to build new research synergies to help solve some of the major problems that are confronting societies.  It also includes the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) and the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Co-operative Research Centre.
