Research Biography

Peter Cook is Professor of Hydrogeology at Flinders University. Between 2009 and 2014 he was Deputy Director of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT), and the Program Leader for the Surface Water - Groundwater Interaction program within the NCGRT. One of Australia's foremost groundwater scientists, Professor Cook has more than 20 years experience in groundwater research, spanning the fields of groundwater hydrology, ecohydrology, isotope hydrology, unsaturated zone flow process, and surface water - groundwater interaction. He has co-written books on environmental tracers and ecohydrology. He was the National Ground Water Association's Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer in Ground Water Science in 2009, the only time this honour has been awarded to a scientist from outside North America.
