Peter Dowd elected President of the IAMG
Professor Peter Dowd, Director of the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Integrated Operations for Complex Resources, has been elected President of the International Association for the Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG) for a four-year term commencing September 2020.
The IAMG promotes international cooperation in the application and use of mathematics in geological research and technology. The organisation is affiliated with the International Union of Geological Sciences and an organisational participant in the International Geological Congress held every four years since 1878.
The IAMG publishes four journals (Mathematical Geosciences; Computers and Geosciences; Natural Resources Research; and Applied Computing and Geosciences) that are widely regarded as the leading publications in the field of quantitative geosciences and in inter-disciplinary approaches to geoscience and natural resources research - geostatistics, computing, machine learning, optimisation, simulation, rapid resource modelling, data analytics and data integration – all topics that align strongly to Professor Dowd’s research and the projects of his ARC Training Centre, and the PRIF Integrated Mining Consortium at the Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources.
Congratulations Peter on this prestigious appointment.
