Presentation theme: More than ore: The future of geophysics in mining.Dr Teresa Ubide Garraida, Associate Professor in Igneous Petrology/Volcanology, University of QueenslandVictorien Paumard is currently a Research Fellow at the Centre for Energy Geoscience, University of Western Australia, specialising in the characterisation of siliciclastic and carbonate systems using seismic stratigraphy and seismic geomorphology. He graduated with a PhD in basin analysis and seismic stratigraphy from the University of Western Australia. He is now a Principal Investigator for the Quantitative Seismic Stratigraphy and Reservoir Analogues research consortiums at UWA. His research interests are focused on the development of quantitative methods to build 3D seismic and sequenceTeresa is an Associate Professor in Igneous Petrology/stratigraphic frameworks to better understand the controls onVolcanology at The University of Queensland. She is passionate the architecture of sedimentary margins. He is also interestedabout understanding how volcanoes work and what causes in the geomorphologic characterisation of modern deltasthem to erupt, or accumulate metals that are critical for our and the reconstruction of submerged palaeolandscapes withsustainable future.
