Samantha is a metamorphic petrologist and PhD candidate within the Continental Evolution Research Group (CERG). Her research concentrates on ultrahigh-temperature metapelites from Central Australia - specifically the Warumpi Province, Aileron Province and Strangways Metamorphic Complex. Through the application of metamorphic petrology, geochronology, geochemistry and mineral equilibria forward modelling, Samantha's project aims to reconstruct the geodynamic framework of Central Australia.
Samantha also has a strong passion for science communication and is the founding Editor for the first Adelaide University Geological Society (AUGS) monthly newsletter: The Dirt. She also provides regular project updates and explanations of geological concepts and methods on her Instagram: @samthegeo.
