I am a Research Associate at UNSW, currently involved in Program 3 of Mineral Exploration Cooperative Research Centre (MinEx CRC).
My primary focus is on characterising the regolith interfaces, and I have been collaborating with geological surveys and research organisations to develop a workflow for recognising the important cover interfaces using field-based data acquisition techniques.
My PhD was focused on identification of geochemical and mineralogical signatures associated with blind lead zinc deposits within the regolith. My background has allowed me to specialise in key areas such as exploration geochemistry, hyperspectral science, and Machine Learning applications in mineral exploration.
