Dr Peter Fullagar holds an M.Sc. from Monash University and a Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of British Columbia. After completing his doctorate he worked in WMC Exploration Division in Australia for 12 years, including 3½ years as Chief Geophysicist. During this time he promoted the application of geophysics at Kambalda Nickel Mines. As Chair of Borehole Geophysics at Ecole Polytechnique, Montreal, in 1993-94 he introduced radio imaging to Inco nickel mines in the Sudbury Basin. After returning to Australia, he joined CSIRO Exploration & Mining Division and was leader of the AMIRA/CMTE P436 in-mine geophysics project, in which borehole logging, downhole radar, seismic, and radio imaging were trialled at seven Australian metalliferous mines. He subsequently investigated the application of geophysics at Freeport’s Grasberg mine in Irian Jaya with Rio Tinto Exploration. In 1998 he established Fullagar Geophysics Pty Ltd in Brisbane, and since then has provided consulting, software, and research services for exploration and mining companies in the metalliferous and coal mining sectors. He has written and commercialised modelling and inversion software for gravity, magnetic, electromagnetic and other geophysical data sets, always with a view to expediting integrated interpretation of geophysical and geological data. During his career he has supervised several Honours, MSc, and PhD projects. He taught undergraduate courses in geophysical inversion at UQ from 2010-2013. In 2014 he moved to Vancouver, Canada.  He is a member of SEG, ASEG, KEGS, and BCGS.
