James Cook University

Texas graduated from James Cook University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Archaeology. His honours thesis developed methods of foraminiferal analysis to refine knowledge of site formation processes using the Kaiadilt archaeological shell midden site of Thundiy, Bentinck Island, southern Gulf of Carpentaria, as a case study.

Texas’ current PhD research utilises unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and photogrammetry to investigate Kaiadilt Aboriginal stone-walled intertidal fishtraps surrounding the coasts of Bentinck Island and Sweers Island in the southern Gulf of Carpentaria.

Texas is interested in novel technological and methodological applications in archaeology, photogrammetry, geographical information systems, engineered landscapes and land management practices in the Australian mid-to-late Holocene.
