Resources Engineering and Technology Group
We bring together a cross-disciplinary group with strengths in geotechnical and hydrogeological engineering, condition monitoring and mechatronics, modelling and mining and resources engineering. Field and laboratory based investigations of materials and processes combined with advanced modelling are core activities of the group. The thematic group has a strong track record of engaging with industry in a national and international context attracting substantial external income to support its activities. We are focused on collaborative activities with external stakeholders to enhance the human and natural environment.
SIET academic awarded prestigious Selwyn Medal
Stephen Carey has been announced as the recipient of the 2018 Selwyn Medal, the premier geology award in Victoria. The award recognises “significant ongoing or former contributions of high calibre to any field of Victorian geology”.
Steve is a Lecturer in Geology teaching palaeontology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, regolith science and fieldwork.
Steve has been involved in geology for all his academic life. To be acknowledged with the Selwyn Medal is very much a career highlight for Steve.
Steve thanks the Geological Society of Australia’s Victorian Division and his industry colleagues for the award of this Medal.
Steve’s research is mainly concerned with the Australian trace fossil record of Pleistocene vertebrates, the development of silcrete in humid regions and the stratigraphic context of a possible early human site at Moyjil, Victoria.
