Hayden is a highly motivated researcher at The University of Melbourne with School of Earth Sciences. He is currently an academic specialist in Ar-Ar geochronology, managing the Ar-Ar laboratory and participating in the development of the Australian Geochemistry Network.
His PhD reseach focuses on how, when, and why fluids and melts affect the deep realms of our planet. Resolving the genesis of these fluids and melts has implications for the transport of chemical species and minerals (including diamonds).His research also seeks to better understand the genesis and evolution of kimberlites, the most deeply derived magmas on our planet – and the principal host of diamonds.
In addition, he is an experienced researcher, tutor, demonstrator, teacher and now coordinator of the In2science outreach program. All of these roles have the aim of educating and increasing scientific awareness and participation and he is always looking to expand my expertise within the STEM outreach space by utilising his passion for this area where participation is in decline.
