Malcolm has been responsible for establishing a new state-of-the-art mass spectrometry and geochemistry facility at UWA that will enable new innovative techniques to be applied to the environmental sciences, the core of Malcolm’s research, but also has wide applications across many science disciplines. His research interests focus mainly on the recent geological record using isotopic and trace element geochemical methods to determine how climate and anthropogenic processes have influenced both past and present marine environments, with particular emphasis on coral reefs. Malcolm received his PhD from the prestigious Californian Institute of Technology (Caltech). In his early career he was a leader is crustal and mantle evolution and cosmochemistry, and has subsequently become a world leader in environmental geochemistry. He is an ISI Highly Cited Researcher having published over 260 scientific papers in leading international journals including 26 in Science and Nature, with over 14,000 citations and an H-index of 65. He has received a number of prestigious awards having been elected Fellow of The Royal Society (London), the Australian Academy of Science, the American Geophysical Union, the Geochemical Society, the Geological Society of Australia, was awarded the Jaeger Medal for career excellence in the earth sciences from the Australian Academy of Sciences, and an Honorary Doctorate from Curtin University.
