Nathan graduated from the Monash University's School of Earth, Atmosphere, and Environment in 2017 with a BSc (Hon) degree, majoring in Geoscience. For his Honours project he studied the paleovolcanology and petrogenesis of the Mount Stavely Volcanic Complex (MSVC). This research was done in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Victoria and Geoscience Australia as a part of the Stavely Project. Nathan stayed on with SEAE for two years as a research assistant, publishing the results of his research, as well as working as a demonstrator teaching geology and geohazard lessons to primary and secondary school students as a part of SEAE's Outreach program.
Nathan began his PhD with CET in July 2020, under the supervision of Steffen Hagemann, Marco Fiorentini, and Tony Kemp. His research project will study the architecture and genesis of the Archean Wandoo Deposit at Newmont Boddington Goldmine. The aim of the project is to use isotope and trace element data to create fertility indicators to aid in near mine exploration.
Nathan has a wide variety of research interests involving economic geology, volcanology, and igneous petrology.
