He has been an active member of IUSS including Commission and Editorial roles. His publications are highly cited.
Bob is the Winthrop Professor of Soil Science at The University of Western Australia. His research areas are soil mineralogy (including natural constituents of the regolith and synthetic and pure minerals) and fertiliser chemistry (e.g. manufactured and rock phosphate fertilisers). Other areas of research activities include: land evaluation, geology, soil and environmental science including geomorphology (coastal dune fields), biocrystallisation and especially the use of soil and landform research in the management of soil, water and other resources. He has also initiated a comprehensive research program into aspects of the revegetation of coal, tin, gold, bauxite and mineral sand mines and processing waste materials which has received more than AU$1M in industry and government funding. He has developed a major research activity on the nature and management of water repellent soils. These studies have mainly been carried out as cooperative investigations with other organisations in a diverse range of management oriented research projects.
