Personal profile


Angela finished her PhD in 2022, at Monash University, specialising on the application of data analysis methods for mineral identification from hyperspectral and assay datasets within porphyry copper deposits. Her PhD was a project included in a broader project, the AMIRA P1202 "Far-field and near-mine footprints: Finding and defining the next generation of Tier-1 deposits", in collaboration with several research entities, particularly University of Tasmania, as well as several industry partners. Angela discusses her role within the project and her thesis research in this interview conducted by AMIRA.

Angela is currently a post-doctoral Research Fellow and Assistant Lecturer in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment, Monash University. Angela's research is a part of the Loop3D project (ARC LP210301239), and contributes to the development, maintenance and enhancement of automated workflows and solutions that translate geological maps' datasets into relevant inputs for geological 3D modelling engines. More specifically, Angela's research contributes to the map2loop Python library, with a particular research focus on the augmentation of structural data from geological maps.
