Join Dr Adrian McCallum for a free seminar, in association with the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland.
Dr McCallum currently serves as a lecturer in the School of Science and Engineering at USC, and manages courses in soil mechanics, geotechnical engineering and climate change adaptation.
He is fortunate to have led a life of adventure and exploration around the globe and is an expert in remote area science and engineering.
He holds a PhD from the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, and additional degrees in oceanography, meteorology and civil engineering.
In 2002 he was awarded the Australian Centenary Medal for his stewardship of the 2001 Australian Army Centenary Everest Expedition and he is a Menzies Scholar and Director of the Menzies Foundation; a non-profit, non-political organisation created to promote excellence in health research, scholarship and postgraduate study by Australians.
During 20 years’ service across the Australian Defence Forces he served in numerous diverse roles such as helicopter navigator, meteorologist and civil engineer and he has led or participated in adventurous scientific expeditions around the globe.
These investigations have taken him to many far-flung locations including Svalbard, Greenland, across the Arctic and Antarctica, and to the Himalaya and the ice caps of Patagonia.
He orchestrated Sir Ranulph Fiennes' ground-breaking 2013 winter Transantarctic expedition, he owns a company specialising in remote area science and engineering and he regularly consults to the Australian Antarctic Division and other international agencies on polar infrastructural and operational matters.
