Personal profile


Mark Lindsay is a Research Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences, Centre for Exploration Targeting, at the University of Western Australia. His research interests include complexities of uncertainty and ambiguity in 3D geological and mineral exploration modelling, and the process and psychology of data interpretation. These themes are an important field of research that have the potential to have a large impact on current practices of deterministic modelling and risk assessment. Mark is working toward a stochastic approach to modelling that attempts to understand the importance of different data types in answering geoscientific questions.
