Ralf Haese received his PhD in Earth Sciences from the University of Bremen (Germany) in 1997 with a study on the early diagenesis of iron in marine sediments. Between 1997 and 2003 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Utrecht (The Netherlands), where he investigated fluid flow and biogeochemical processes in submarine mud volcanoes and estuarine nutrient dynamics.
He was teaching chemical oceanography and coastal field work. In 2003, Dr Ralf Haese joined Geoscience Australia as a project leader for Coastal Research and Management studying nutrient sources and accumulation in Australian estuaries. He became the project leader of the CO2CRC project on Reactive Reservoir Rocks in 2010. He joined The University of Melbourne as Professor of Environmental Geochemistry in 2013 and was appointed as Director of the Peter Cook Centre for CCS Research in 2017. He teaches Environmental Geosciences to undergraduate students. His research group investigates fluid-rock reactions, reactive-transport in porous rocks and pore scale processes mostly in the context of geological carbon storage in sedimentary rocks.
