Overview

As a Geochemist I am interested in understanding the hydrogeological and hydrochemical processes that occur in large sedimentary basins. Understanding the fluid-rock and microbial interactions that influence the composition of the groundwater and gas allows us to better understand and manage their use. I achieve this by the interpretation of geochemical and isotopic data against geological context (stratigraphic and tectonic) to determine the dominant processes controlling the down-dip geochemical evolution of the groundwater and gas.

My primary focus is manager of the Stable Isotope Geochemistry Laboratory which provides stable isotope analyses (C, H, O, N, S) for researchers across UQ and Australia as well as governement and industry. As part of this I advise researchers on sample collection protocols how best to collect their field samples (water and gas), develop methods and offer interpretation as required.

Manager of the Stable Isotope Geochemistry Laboratory (SIGL)

SIGL is one of the 3 analytical research laboratories which comprises the Centre for Geoanalytical Mass Spectrometry (CGMS) within the School of of Earth and Environmental Sciences and offers stable isotope analyses of geological, ecological and biomedical samples.
