The Environment Institute congratulates Professor Corey Bradshaw on his appointment to the Sir Hubert Wilkins Chair in Climate Change. Corey will take on this title from the 1st January 2015.
Corey has an international reputation as a scientist with interests in climate change and its impacts on ecosystems and biodiversity, and will no doubt build a lasting legacy in this role.
The Chair of Climate Change is named after Sir Hubert Wilkins, a South Australian who spent his life researching the weather and how it impacts on people. Sir Hubert was concerned about the loss of native flora and fauna in Australia in an era when few people thought about conservation.
Corey will replace current chair, Professor Barry Brook, who will leave the University of Adelaide at the end of 2014.
“I very much appreciate the honour that it represents. I will do my utmost to live up to the reputation Barry left the Chair.” said Professor Bradshaw following his appointment to the chair.
