Dr Laura Jackson obtained her PhD at the Centre for Ore Deposit and Earth Sciences (CODES), University of Tasmania (2020). Her research as part of the Transforming the Mining Value Chain (TMVC), developing new tests and protocols for improving waste characterisation with a focus on integrating waste characterisation across the entire mining value chain to enable the use of new techniques and technologies for early life-of-mine geoenvironmental forecasting. Professionally, she has worked at an environmental consultancy as a senior geochemist on a range of industry and government projects from prefeasibility through to closure and rehabilitation (2018-20). Currently, Dr Jackson is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Geometallurgy and Applied Geochemistry at the W.H Bryan Mining and Geology Research Centre within the Sustainable Minerals Institute.
