Portrait of Dan   Penny

An associate Professor of Geosciences at University of Sydney, NSW, Australia, Dan Penny researches environmental histories.

His work ranges from environmental histories of the global tropics, particularly mainland Southeast Asia (with numerous works on Cambodian medieval cities including Angkor) and central America, through to Australian based environmental reconstructions, applying expertise in palaeo-botany and sedimentology to document the response of ecosystems to climatic variability and human activities over long periods of time.
