Meet Our 2013 Graduates
Seven graduates were selected into the 2013 Graduate Program. The successful graduates were:
Millie Crowe was born and bred in the Top End and braved the cold temperatures of Adelaide to complete a Bachelor of Science with Honours in geophysics. Her Honours research focused on using geophysics to help assess the geometry of geological basins. During Millie's graduate rotations, she hopes to find out how geophysics can be applied to a range of research topics.
Chris Harris-Pascal completed his undergraduate studies at the Australian National University (ANU), majoring in geology and biology. Chris then completed Honours at the ANU investigating the use of uranium isotopes to better understand groundwater flow rates. His first graduate rotation is a project mapping the distribution of potential sites for geothermal energy exploration.
Sarlae McAlpine grew up on beautiful Norfolk Island. She completed a Bachelor of Science majoring in Chemistry and Geology at the Australian National University, with Honours specialising in Metamorphic Petrology. Sarlae's PhD focused on peridotite-cored basalt bombs erupted from three volcanic arcs in the Western Pacific. Her first graduate rotation is using remote sensing techniques to monitor surface deformation caused by magma intrusion beneath volcanoes.
Kathryn Owen discovered her passion for geoscience during an elective unit in the final semester of a Media Arts degree. She later completed a Bachelor of Science degree at Monash University, eventually completing Honours studying the eruption history of a volcanic island in the North Atlantic Ocean. During her first rotation Kathryn is working on a project that hopes to develop ways of forecasting earthquake aftershocks within Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Kathryn Waltenberg completed a Bachelor of Science in Earth Science and Chemistry and her Honours and PhD studies at the University of Queensland. Kathryn’s research focussed on developing new methods for dating volcanic and weathering processes. Her first rotation in the graduate program is looking at ways to using GIS tools to develop a multi-hazard risk assessment for the Asia-Pacific Region.
