Jerry Maroulis is, since 2012, a lecturer at Wageningen University & Research in the Soil Physics and Land Management (SLM) Group. He obtained his PhD at Wollongong University in fluvial geomorphology investigating climate change impacts over the past 100,000 years on a major semi-arid, low-gradient river system known as Cooper Creek in central Australia. He was Co-Director and Deputy Director of the Australian Centre for Sustainable Catchments (ACSC) research centre at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Toowoomba, Australia from 2007-2010 and is currently an adjunct senior lecturer at USQ's International Centre for Applied Climate Sciences (ICACS). He also worked as an academic in the Faculty of Education at USQ for over 17 years preparing pre-service teachers in science and mathematics education where he received a number of teaching awards for his creative and innovative approaches to online and student-centred pedagogical practices. Furthermore, he worked as a senior environmental consultant with the environmental firm, Landloch in 2010-11, focusing largely on soil-erosion based research for a number of large Australian mining companies and Government agencies.
