About the Society Awards Past Award Winners 2019 Awardees 2019 (Romer-Simpson Medal) Dr. Michael Archer  



Prof. Mike Archer (BA, Princeton University; PhD, UWA) has been totally addicted to fossils since he was 11. Although he was born in Australia in 1945, he grew up in the rural town of Pine Plains, New York. In 1967 he took up a Fulbright Fellowship to spend a year searching for fossils in Australia. He quickly became fascinated by the living mammals as well as fossils of Australia and decided to stay. He has been a Research Associate in the Western Australian Museum, Curator of Mammals at the Queensland Museum, Director of the Australian Museum in Sydney, Dean of Science at the University of New South Wales and Professor and member of the PANGEA Research Center at the University of New South Wales. His research has focused on the deep past such as the fossil deposits of the Riversleigh World Heritage Area, the fragile present such as conservation through sustainable use of native resources including having native animals as pets, saving endangered living species based on the wisdom of the fossil record, and trying to bring extinct species (e.g., the Thylacine and Gastric-brooding Frog) back into the world of the living. He has supervised/co-supervised with his partner Prof. Suzanne Hand more than 50 higher degree research students and produced well over 300 scientific publications with hopefully many more of both to come!
