Dr Duncan Cook is the Head of Discipline (Geography) and Senior Lecturer at Australian Catholic University in Brisbane, and an Adjunct Research Fellow of the Butzer Memorial Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin. He is an award-winning University teacher and researcher, and has previously held research positions at the Smithsonian Institution, Georgetown University, the University of Glasgow, and the New Zealand Defence Force. He has been elected councillor of the Geographical Society of New South Wales and the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland, where he currently serves on the Society’s Awards Committee. Duncan’s research is currently focused on the geomorphology and geoarchaeology of the ancient Maya lowlands of Central America, in collaboration with colleagues in the USA, UK and Australia. This work continues to attract global public interest and media coverage, including (most recently) being filmed by National Geographic for the 2019 television series, Lost Treasures of the Maya.
