Title: My Journey in Geophysics


Roger Miller / Geoscience Australia

Ravin Deo/ Geoscience Australia

Date and Time: 5:00pm (AEDT time), 30th Nov 2023


Roger Miller graduated from University of Leicester (UK) with BSc (Hons) in Geophysics (Geological) in 1993 at the height of an industry downturn in Europe. After 2 years of temporary work he got his first role in the geophysics industry as a field geophysicist acquiring CSAMT, TDEM and MT, before travelling to Australia and finding employment as a Geophysical Project Manager, responsible for safe operations of geophysical field crews, often in remote areas and overseas. He has predominantly worked in industry with Fugro Ground Geophysics, Fugro Engineering Services, Fugro Airborne Surveys, Seabed Geosolutions and Petronas Carigali before joining Geoscience Australia in October this year. He has over 25 years’ experience in the interpretation and integration of multiple geophysical, geological and supplementary datasets, specialised in hydrocarbon and mineral exploration and shallow geophysics, utilising a combination of gravity gradiometry (FTG and FALCON), gravity, magnetic, marine CSEM/MT, seismic, airborne TDEM and well log data.

Ravin Deo recently joined Geoscience Australia as a geophysicist and comes from academia with experiences in Fiji and Australia. His experiences from the wider applied physics field imparts in him skills to approach a complex and technically challenging problem from various perspectives simultaneously. He has experience in numerical modelling and developing instrumentation and sensors for measurement and assessment and has strong expertise in geophysical systems for practical near-surface applications.
