Professor, Griffith University

Adam Brumm is a professor of archaeology and a former Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow at Queensland's Griffith University. He completed his PhD in archaeology at The Australian National University in 2007 and undertook postdoctoral fellowships at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research (University of Cambridge) and the Centre for Archaeological Science (University of Wollongong) before coming to Griffith in 2014. He previously held an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award and was co-leader of a 5-year ARC Discovery project aimed at finding fossil evidence for the evolution of Homo floresiensis (the Flores 'Hobbit'). Brumm's archaeological research focuses on the deep-time story of humans in Indonesia; especially in Wallacea, the vast zone of oceanic islands lying east of continental Asia and the gateway to ancient Australia.
