Professor Karin Hatch

Faculty of Sciences

Professor Karin Barovich

My research interests centre on the use of isotopic variations of elements such as Hf, Nd, Sr, and Pb to understand the origin and chemical evolution of the Earth and using radiogenic isotopes to determine the ages of rocks and geological events. I am also interested in science education, especially the transition into university study.

My teaching interests include igneous geology and geochemistry.

Dr Kate Sanders

ARC Future Fellow
Faculty of Sciences

Kate's research focuses primarily on trait evolution and speciation in squamate reptiles, and the evolution of sensory systems in the transition to aquatic habitats in snakes. Her research has a substantial fieldwork component focused primarily in Indonesia and Western Australia; this has led to the discovery of new species, and generated ecological and distributional data that have contributed to conservation assessments.
