Dr Mark Lindsay (University of Western Australia)
Bachelor of Science (Honours)
Mark completed his BSc (Honours) at Monash University in 2008 and graduated from his PhD at Monash University and Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse III) in October 2013.
He is currently a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences, Centre for Exploration Targeting, at the University of Western Australia. His research interests include complexities of uncertainty and ambiguity in 3D geological and mineral exploration modelling, and the process and psychology of data interpretation. These themes are an important field of research that have the potential to have a large impact on current practices of deterministic modelling and risk assessment.
Mark is working toward a stochastic approach to modelling that attempts to understand the importance of different data types in answering geoscientific questions. Mark has extensive experience in geophysical data modelling and has worked with a number of leading Australian mining organisations including BHP Billiton.
