Cohen
Chief Investigator & Climate Theme Leader
Australia

University of Wollongong

Tim Cohen is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Wollongong. He is the Deputy Theme leader for Climate in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH). He is a geomorphologist and Quaternary scientist who researches landscapes and their evolution and past climates. In many ways he is a natural historian, an earth scientist and somebody who reads the landscape. His current work includes palaeoclimatic research in central Australia on what once was Australia’s mega-lakes. Whilst many in his field either stick to the past or the present Tim’s research attempts to straddle the two and integrate the results into the management of the Australian landscape. He has had extensive experience in both the research and applied aspects of his work working for state governments, resource management agencies and as an independent consultant.

“I like a really sharp shovel, an effective and efficient corer, an excavator, a map and a GPS!”
