Professor Mike Dentith works across UWA's School of Earth and Environment, Centre for  Energy Geoscience and Centre for Exploration Targeting.

His research interests are predominantly in applied geophysics, in particular research relevant to the mining and petroleum industries.

His mining-related research is carried out through the UWA Centre for Exploration Targeting and includes understanding the geophysical responses of mineral deposits, especially from a petrophysical/geological perspective; novel approaches to processing of magnetic and similar datasets; and using regional geophysical datasets from mineralised terrains as indicators of prospectivity.

Mike is also a published author
