A/Prof. Stuart Clark is a geophysicist with an interest in resource exploration in frontier environments. His current research also includes automation of geophysical interpretation, optimisation of infrastructure placement and numerical simulations of Earth processes. Prior to joining UNSW in 2017, he was the Director of Research, for Kalkulo AS in Norway (2014-2017) and the Head of Department of Computational Geoscience for the Norwegian Simula Research Laboratory (2011-2014). In these roles he worked on and managed projects delivering cutting edge software and research products to impact industry workflows and regional geological understanding.
