Councillor Yulia Uvarova (2018-2019)
Yulia obtained her B.Sc. in Geology from Moscow State University in 2001 and her Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Manitoba in 2008. From 2000-2002, she worked at the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry, Moscow, Russia as a Research Assistant. From 2003-2008 she was a teaching assistant at the University of Manitoba. From 2008-2012, Yulia worked at Queens’ University, in the Queen’s Facility for Isotope Research, where her research focused on geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology and genesis of economic mineral deposits, uranium in particular; development of new exploration tools for search of U deposits; behaviour of HFSE in high-temperature systems; geochemistry of non-traditional isotopic systems and application of these systems to elucidate processes responsible for deposit formation. Yulia Uvarova holds a Research Scientist position in CSIRO Mineral Resources, Perth and works in a team of researchers developing new workflows and techniques for mapping the distal footprints of metalliferous mineral systems through drilling and sampling and developing the science of understanding large geochemical footprints of mineral systems and their detection on the surface.
