About the Author
I had an early interest in evolution and biology and studied engineering mathematics at Flinders University, Adelaide, South Australia. After graduating in 1978, I worked for eight years at a copper and gold mine on the tropical island of Bougainville, in Papua New Guinea. I had the privilege to stay in many of the local villages and join in with their activities. Recreation on the island included scuba diving, mostly at night. A travel allowance led to numerous trips to other parts of the world. Relocating to Tasmania, I worked for CSIRO in the mathematical modelling of ocean currents. Returning to study, I completed a PhD in the philosophy of biology at the University of Tasmania in 1998. I am currently living in Queensland.
