Consultant Geologist, CSA Global

Founder of the Papua New Guinea Geoscience Network (www.pnggeoscience.com)

I am and experienced geologist with an extensive and diverse background encompassing both the minerals and oil and gas sectors. Through my work I have developed expertise in unravelling the metallogenesis and prospectivity of complex tectonic settings through multidisciplinary methods that include, but are not limited to, geodynamics and structural geology, geophysical interpretation, petrology, geochemistry and isotope systematics, and geochronology. I use this skills coupled with strong analytical and problem-solving skills to deliver integrated geological solutions in project generation and deposit targeting.

I also draw from experience exceeding 10 years in geoscience training and education that has gained recognition and multiple awards to offer workshops and training programs that can be developed to cater for the specific needs of a client.
