Adjunct Senior Research Fellow
School of Earth Sciences - Centre for Exploration Targeting
Steven was appointed as the Inaugural Hammond-Nisbet Fellow to the Centre for Exploration Targeting in late 2011, with a remit to combine the disciplines of field mapping, structural geology, and geophysics, to generate creative new outcomes for the exploration industry. Having received a PhD from Leeds University, UK, he moved to conduct research at the Research School for Earth Sciences, Australian National University (ANU), and then CODES Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits, University of Tasmania (UTAS). He is a recipient of the Rising Stars Award (UTAS). He has international and national collaborative links with the University of Massachusetts, Sydney University, CSIRO, Strathclyde University and the University of British Columbia, which have led to the publication of a number of journal articles. Steven has mapped in South Africa, Indonesia, Australia and the USA, and studied epithermal, Carlin-type and orogenic gold deposits, as well as unusual pyrophyllite deposits.
