Niels Munksgaard

Senior Research Fellow

Niels took the long road to JCU Cairns starting with a PhD in Petrology at the University of Copenhagen, then working for Big Oil in the North Sea, driving an Electron Microprobe in Sydney, mapping Antarctic mountains, and years of studying mud, water and biota for environmental monitoring all over Northern Australia. At JCU his task is to develop new instruments for field-based analysis of stable isotopes (H, C, O) in water, soil and other environmental samples. These world-first gadgets will help provide new insights into weighty questions about global water and carbon cycling.
