In 2002, I graduated with First Class Honours from the University of Adelaide as an International student, supported by a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) scholarship. In 2005, I was awarded a Master degree from the Freiberg University of Mining and Technology, Germany. Subsequently, I was funded by an IPRS scholarship to undertake a PhD, titled "Modelling and inversion of magnetotelluric data for 2-D and 3-D lithospheric structure, with application to obducted and subducted terranes" at Adelaide University. The PhD work was completed in May 2008.
I am currently employed as a Research Associate at the Auscope MT facility at Adelaide University under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Scheme (NCRIS).
Research InterestsGenerally, my interests are in improving the understanding of magnetotelluric impedance data, starting from processing of time-series, analysing the MT impedance tensor in terms of dimensionality and distortion, as well as different aspects of modelling in two and three dimensions.
My current research involves incorporation of static shift correction into the three-dimensional inversion scheme of MT data. The corrections enable a better fit of the resistivity model to the measured MT data leading to a more realistic model. Large-scale three-dimensional models are compared to two-dimensional modelling results, which usually incorporate a denser site spacing.
