Maurice Tivey is a senior scientist in the department of Geology and Geophysics. His work on magnetic imaging of the subsurface structure of hydrothermal systems has recently attracted the attention of the industrial sector, in particular the fledgling industry of marine mining. As a DOEI Fellow, he pursued several opportunities that have both a direct impact on his own reseach and will help him develop an industrial partnership for external funding that could potentionally benefit many other colleagues at the institution as well.
