I am a research geologist, with a demonstrated background in geochemistry and geochronology, having worked on Himalayan tectonics, and now in the critical minerals space. I was awarded a PhD from the University of Wollongong in August 2021 and am currently an ARC Grant-Funded Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Earth Sciences (School of Physical Sciences, Faculty of Sciences) at The University of Adelaide. Within the Australia Critical Minerals Research Centre, my research focuses on how and where deposits of critical metals, such as rare earth elements, are formed within the Australian continent.
