Prof

Mike Sandiford

 

Mike Sandiford is a geologist fascinated by the remarkable planet we inhabit. He works on landscapes, mountains and earth energetics, and is increasingly interested in the relationship between people and the planet.

His research has taken him to many farfetched parts of the planet including Antarctica, remote Australia, Timor, Tibet, the Kunlun and the Himalaya. His privilege is to meet and work amongst peoples in communities that have lived for millennia in some of the most dynamic and remote parts of our planet.

Mike's geological research on the origin and evolution of the continents has been published in over 150 research papers and was recognised with the award of the Mawson Medal for 'outstanding contributions to earth science in Australia'. He is a regular contributor to popular press on geological issues and, especially, the role of humans as geological agents.
