Special guest

Patrick Nunn is Professor of Geography at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia. Trained in the UK as a geographer and geologist, specializing in the effects of sea-level changes on landscape evolution, he spent much of his academic career at the University of the South Pacific where he became immersed in Pacific geological histories and cultural worldviews.  Here he also developed interests in past and future climate changes and their impacts, especially in island worlds. He has lived in Australia for a decade, extending his research interests throughout this region. Author of more than three hundred peer-reviewed and several books, Patrick Nunn has also received a number of awards for his work.
