PROFESSOR GRAHAM TAYLOR
(Retired) has over 25 years of teaching experience (ANU, University of Hong Kong and UC). He has a passionate enthusiasm for regolith geoscience, imparting his knowledge to legions of students and contributing towards the importance of regolith and its educational uptake in Australian Universities. He currently lectures in rock weathering, regolith mapping and earth science fundamentals at UC. He developed (with Tony Eggleton ) Masters by Coursework and Sub-Thesis in Regolith Studies and undergraduate programs in Soils (ANU/UC). He is an authority on silcrete and other duricrusts, and loves an argument on "periods of weathering", landscape processes and regolith formation. As with his good friend Tony Eggleton , among many publications Graham produced the textbook Regolith Geology and Geomorphology. Graham has a decade of involvement with LEME firstly as a founder Executive Member and Leader of E&T Program in LEME 1, which was hailed at the 5th Year review as "one of the very best". He was instrumental in the successful bid for LEME 2 and was Interim E&T Program Leader.
