Our People

  

We are a multi-disciplinary group of scientists, engineers, anthropologists, sociologists, economists, and natural resource specialists. We have in-depth knowledge of the minerals industry, both at corporate and operational levels, built from years of practical experience and engagement.

Our Directors are knowledgeable industry leaders, and our team is skilled to provide strategic or specialist advice, develop policy, and deliver world-leading research, education and training.

Our position within The University of Queensland, and our ability to link research and practice across several disciplines, sets us apart and adds unique value to our work.
