We would like to congratulate Volodymyr Lysytsyn (Vladimir Lisitsin) for his thesis entitled “Mineral prospectivity analysis and quantitative resource assessments for regional exploration targeting: Development of effective integration models and practical applications” being accepted by the Board of the Graduate Research School as satisfying the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in UWA.
Vladimir has worked in the Geological Surveys of Victoria and Queensland since 2002. In 2010, he joined the UWA’s PhD program at the Centre for Exploration Targeting within School of Earth and Environment as an external candidate. His research focused on developing a system of integrated regional mineral prospectivity analysis, combining individual methods of spatial data analysis, mineral system analysis, prospectivity modelling and quantitative mineral resource assessment. One of the research outcomes is a proposed new approach to explicitly define and assess uncertainty of mineral prospectivity maps – the probabilistic fuzzy logic method. This research, which resulted in six journal publications and four technical reports, was supervised by Professor Cam McCuaig and Dr Alok Porwal.
Congratulations Dr. Vladimir Lisitsin!
