Dr Mark Lindsay (University of Western Australia)

Bachelor of Science (Honours)
PhD, Geoscience

Mark Lindsay 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 Science Leader at the CSIRO and leads “Minerals 4D” and digitalisation of the mining value chain. Mark is also an Adjunct Senior Research Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences, Centre for Exploration Targeting, at the University of Western Australia. His research interests include complex Earth systems, knowledge management and representation, 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, and how knowledge and associated uncertainties propagate through the mining value chain.
