Personal profile

Biography

Janet completed her B.Sc (Hons) at UWA in 1972 with a research project looking at the role of banded iron formation in the genesis of nickel sulphide mineralisation at Mt Windarra, W.A.
After four years working for industry and GSWA she returned to UWA to undertake post-graduate studies of high-grade metamorphic rocks in the Narryer Terrane of the northern Yilgarn Craton. Extensive experience of electron probe microanalysis as part of her PhD project led to a post-doctoral fellowship in the Electron Microscopy Centre (now CMCA) on completion of her post-graduate studies.
Janet returned to consulting and contracting work in the mineral exploration industry in 1991 before returning to UWA and CMCA as a Research Associate in 2005.
