Daniel Wiemer is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Exploration Targeting, School of Earth Sciences, University of Western Australia, since 2017, within the working group of Prof. S. Hagemann.
He received a M.Sc. from the Christian-Albrechts University, Kiel, Germany (2012; supervisor: Prof. V. Schenk), and a Ph.D. from the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia (2017; supervisors: Dr. D. Murphy, Dr. C. Schrank), for which he received an Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award.
Daniel’s expertise includes: economic geology, field-based structural geology, magmatic and metamorphic petrology, geochemistry/isotope geochemistry, and geochronology. His research interests mainly focus on:
(i) tectonic modes and crustal evolution throughout Earth history, with emphasis on the Archean eon, and
(ii) multi-scale geodynamic processes associated with arc-related ore-system formation, with emphasis on gold mineralization in the Peruvian Andes of South America.
Daniel’s research philosophy seeks to combine frontier science research and the improvement of applied industry-relevant exploration targeting strategies. He advocates a mineral system concept approach.
Within UWA’s School of Earth Sciences, Daniel is frequently involved in teaching of undergraduate students, mainly in the field of mineral resources and their structural controls.
