Bill Boyd Professor 02 6620 3569
School of Environment, Science and Engineering Professor

Bill is the Professor of Geography at Southern Cross University, the Chair of his University?s Human Research Ethics and Animal Care & Ethics Committees, and the University's Student Ombud.

He a geographer, archaeologist and landscape scientist, with research and teaching interests in environmental change, human-landscape interactions, environmental and cultural heritage management, and higher education. He draws on both the geosciences and the humanities to inform his research and teaching. His current focus is on the management of environmental and cultural heritage places and landscapes, and community engagement in environmental management. As an education researcher, he uses reflective narrative methods to examine pedagogy, curriculum and teaching & learning practice. He has published extensively in all these areas, and has co-authored several books.

Bill holds doctorates from the Universities of Glasgow and St Andrews, is a Life Fellow of Clare Hall, University of Cambridge, and a Visiting Professor at the Australian Studies Centre, University of Barcelona.

Malcolm Clark Associate Professor 02 6620 3149
School of Environment, Science and Engineering Associate Professor My research and teaching expertise are in low temperature environmental and engineering geochemistry. For the past 16 years my research has mostly focused on the neutralisation geochemistry and utilisation of bauxite refinery residues (red muds). This work has led to several successful ARC-Linkage grants, which have included methods for developing porous pellets of modified bauxite refinery residues (MBRR), use of the MBRR's in concretes, and shotcretes, and treatment grouts. Despite the focus on red mud, other research interests and expertise, include but are not limited to, trace-metal geochemistry in reduced environments (including mangroves), clay mineralogy and surface chemistries, acid mine drainage and its impacts, sulfide oxidation processes, and Msssbauer studies of iron minerals.
