Personal profile


Naomi Tucker is a Lecturer and Early Career Researcher in Earth Science at the University of Western Australia. She completed her PhD at the University of Adelaide in 2018 with a research focus on Archean-Proterozoic high-temperature metamorphism and crustal growth along Australian-Antarctic continent margins. Her PhD outcomes resulted in eight peer-review journal publications and a University Doctoral Medal. Naomi has remote field experience in East Antarctica (Bunger Hills) and central-west Australia and is enthusiastic to apply her expertise to new challenges and collaborations. Her current research foci include using Archean metamorphism to better constrain the onset of plate tectonics, the subglacial geology of East Antarctica, and geochronological insights into mapping terrane boundaries.


Current research interests include:

- Archean metamorphism as a proxy for the onset of plate tectonics
- Subglacial geology of East Antarctica
- Geochronological insights into mapping terrane boundaries
