Faculty of Sciences
I am a PhD student in the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science within the School of Biological Sciences. My research is focused on examining the use of advanced remote sensing techniques to benefit mineral exploration. I am specifically interested in the interactions at the surface and subsurface between mineralogical and geochemical expressions of alteration using remote sensing and traditional mineral exploration methods. My work endeavours to integrate remote sensing into standard mineral exploration methodology.
