Dr Sean C. Johnson
- Geochemistry Manager
Dr. Sean Johnson is iCRAG Geochemistry Manager. He read Geology for his BSc Hons. at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland before working a mine and exploration geology roles. He completed his PhD on the geochemistry of metalliferous black shales at CODES (the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits), under the supervision of Prof. Ross Large. Upon completion, he was appointed as a Research Fellow at CODES conducting R&D on aspects of LA-ICP-MS, managed the elemental analyse labs and taught undergraduate courses in sedimentology, economic geology, mineralogy and marine geoscience.
Sean’s research focusses on the combination of fieldwork and geochemistry on order to understand metal cycling (its source, sinks and processes) in sediments. This work has ready application to the minerals and materials sector but also hydrocarbons, biogeochemistry, and applied environmental chemistry. As such, he has been involved in variety of collaborations across the academic, government, and industry spectrum.
