Sean Ulm is Distinguished Professor of Archaeology at James Cook University and Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, an Honorary Research Fellow of the Queensland Museum, an Honorary Fellow of the School of Social Sciences at The University of Western Australia and a Fellow of the Cairns Institute. Sean’s research focuses on persistent problems in the archaeology of northern Australia and the western Pacific where understanding the relationships between environmental change and cultural change using advanced studies of archaeological and palaeoenvironmental sequences are central to constructions of the human past. His priority has been to develop new tools to investigate and articulate co-variability and co-development of human and natural systems. His publications include more than 100 articles on the archaeology of Australia and 5 books. He has served as the Editor-In-Chief of Australian Archaeology, is a former President of the Australian Archaeological Association Inc., and is Editor of Queensland Archaeological Research.
