I'm an igneous geochemist working on the Peak Range volcanic province in Central Queensland. This project entails uncovering the REE-mineralisation potential of these enriched peaks and their general geological origin. I'm currently part of the Critical Minerals Research Group under the lead of A.Prof Carl Spandler.
During my PhD, I worked on the Meso- and Cenozoic magmatic provinces along the Australian Southern margin, more specific Tasmania, the Gippsland Basin and Bass Basin. For this project I combined seismic reflection data and geochemistry to describe and interpret the magmatic events in this region.
Prior to my PhD, I worked at the ORBiT research group, University of Ghent. There I used several near surface geophysical techniques such as electromagnetic induction and ground penetrating radar to map and inventorise soil bodies.
