Geoscientist at Northern Territory Geological Survey
Australian living in Darwin
Marianne is a geologist and mother of two young boys. Born and raised in a modest, suburban Sydney household, Marianne’s decision to become a geologist came as a surprise to her non-scientific parents. Her mother’s advice that geology would be a male-dominated and remote field to work in proved to be the case. Marianne’s career has taken her from the top of Australia in Weipa to the coal pits of New South Wales and to the depths of the undergrounds in Mount Isa. Currently based in Darwin, Marianne has worked in exploration and mining for more than 25 years.
