Mark completed his BSc (Honours) at Monash University and graduated from his PhD at Monash University and Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse III) in October 2013. He moved to Perth in January 2013 to join The University of Western Australia as a Research Assistant Professor. Mark is developing techniques that combine structural geology, geophysical interpretation and 3D modelling to gain a better understanding of the link between tectonic evolution, crustal architecture and mineral systems. He is developing techniques to better understand uncertainty and variability within 3D geological and mineral potential models, in addition to generating a new suite of geological inputs for inversion schemes.

Key Research

  • Methods to quantify and locate variability and associated uncertainties in 3D models
  • Model space exploration
  • 3D mineral systems prospectivity analysis
  • Integration of potential field interpretation with remote sensing and field observations to better understand 4D geological systems
  • Development of automated modelling techniques (calculation, forward modelling, inversion) to improve efficiency
