Personal profile


Maree is a Senior Lecturer at James Cook University. She is interested in the Precambrian Earth system, particularly the global climatic events of the Cryogenian and Ediacaran periods and their impact on the evolution of life. Currently, she investigates the contribution of microbial communities to Precambrian carbonate reef framework building. She focuses on stromatolite morphology and their architectural role in ancient reef geomorphology, along with stromatolite geochemistry and microbial biomarkers.  Current projects include Cryogenian reefs of the northern Flinders Range, South Australia and Neoproterozoic deposits of the Kimberley region, Western Australia.

Maree has an ongoing interest is medical geology, investigating the relationship between a range of diseases and their geological host environment. Projects have included Melioidosis and Ross River Virus.

Through academic and industry roles, Maree has several years’ experience working in Queensland Palaeozoic and Mesozoic basins on a range of coal, coal seam gas, underground coals gasification carbon sequestration and hydrogeological projects.
