Biography

Louise is currently investigating the changes in trace element signatures as possible indicators for magmatic nickel-copper-cobalt-platinum group element (Ni-Cu-Co-PGE) mineralisation. She has been at CSIRO since 2017, runs the laser ablation ICP-MS (LA-ICP-MS) for internal and external users and uses advanced micro-characterisation technologies to understand how the earth and mineral deposits form.

Louise completed her undergraduate and honours degrees at James Cook University in Townsville, QLD, focused on the alteration of a large rare earth element (REE) deposit in central Australia. She graduated with a PhD from the Australian National University (ANU) in 2018 where she focused on the experimental partitioning of trace elements between plagioclase, clinopyroxene and melt. Louise was a postdoctoral fellow in CSIRO Mineral Resources at the Australian Resources Research Centre (ARRC) in Perth from late 2017, transitioning to research scientist in 2020.
