ASEG WA Networking Event: Women in Geoscience

Date and time: Wednesday, June 26 · 5:30pm AWST

Location: The Shoe Bar and Cafe, 376 - 420 Wellington Street Perth, WA 6050 Australia



Hosting a panel of three emerging industry professional and academia researchers: Natalia Valenzuela, Stephanie Vialle, and Anne Tomlinson; to shed light on their careers in the industry and academia.


Natalia is a geoscientist with over five years of integrative experience across various geoscience domains. She holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Earth Sciences (Mexico) and a Master’s in Geoscience from the University of Western Australia. Her professional journey commenced with a focus on near-surface geophysical methods. Upon completion of postgraduate studies in Australia, she embarked on a dynamic career path, including seismic interpretation in the oil and gas industry (Internship at Woodside), followed by enriching experiences in the mining sector, where she contributed to exciting copper and gold projects (Resource geoscientist at Rio Tinto-Winu and grad geo at Northern Star- Carouse Dam). In the most recent years, she transitioned to the urban life and ventured into a new industry, joining Datamine as an exploration geology consultant. This year, her journey led to HiSeis, where she have found the ideal fusion of seismic interpretation and mineral exploration, working as a seismic interpreter. This role encapsulates her passion for integrating seismic data with mineral exploration, driving innovation and insights in both fields.



Stephanie Vialle is a geoscientist, educator and mentor, interested in Earth Sciences in general and in Geochemistry and Rock Physics in particular. She is a unit coordinator and lecturer for several units in the fields of Geophysics and Earth Sciences at Curtin University. Her core area of research is multidisciplinary by nature, and lies in the understanding of how geophysical observables relate to geological features and dynamic processes via the link of geochemistry. She has contributed to and led several government and industry-funded projects on various geological or subsurface-engineered processes, such as aquifer storage and recharge, geological carbon sequestration, and currently, stimulation and storage of hydrogen and mineral exploration.

She has a PhD from the Institut de physique du globe de Paris (IPGP) and Paris Cité University (formerly Paris Diderot University) and did her postdoc at Stanford University before moving to Australia.



Anne’s a dual-qualified geologist and geophysicist with a specialisation in potential fields and interpretation. She completed her studies at the University of Auckland and spent her early graduate years with Newmont in near-mine exploration and mine geology roles at underground gold operations in Queensland and Western Australia. She joined Southern Geoscience in 2005 and after nine years as a Principal Geophysicist, she stepped into the Managing Director role in 2021. Anne is passionate about geoscience and the resources industry and has been actively involved in professional bodies throughout her career. She currently sits on the ASEG’s Education Committee and is part of the CSIRO’s Professionals in Schools program, regularly advocating STEM and geoscience at primary and secondary school levels, especially for girls.
