Dr Sandra Occhipinti
Sandra is a structural geologist with over 20 years of experience. She has worked across the government, industry and academic sectors – most notably for the Geological Survey of Western Australia, the University of Western Australia and AngloGold Ashanti and Fugro Airborne Surveys. Her work has varied from understanding the tectonic development of a region to detecting ore deposits at the prospect scale using geology, geophysics, mineralogy and geochemistry. Her recent work in mineral systems science includes integrating multi-scale interdisciplinary datasets in order to complete multicommodity analyses using fuzzy logic methods that include integrated geological domain knowledge into the analyses. She has also worked in project generation within regions throughout Australia, in South-East Asia and the Americas.
