About me, huh?
I’m a geologist who is currently working in a research lab in Australia. I work on research problems relevant to the mineral exploration industry. My day job is to effectively interpret geoscientific data for the purpose of better understanding of how mineral systems form and produce economic mineral deposits, and to use that understanding in a predictive capacity to try and determine which areas have a higher potential for the formation of the same type of mineral deposit.
While this is my primary job function, I am also interested in how to address practical challenges faced working with real mineral exploration data (not just idealized government datasets), as well as methods for quantitative resource assessment. Aside from research, I also supervise grad students, do some teaching on mineral exploration, and run training courses in developing countries as part of international development programs. Occasionally I do some consulting work for industry as well.
Outside of work, I am a passionate photographer, scuba diver, and marine conservationist. And I love to travel.
Expect this blog to contain my opinions on anything and everything. Because I’m opinionated like that.
I want to make it clear that this blog contains my own personal opinions, and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of my employer.
