Senior Lecturer, Western Australian School of Mines, Curtin University
Domenik is senior lecturer at the Curtin University in Perth, coordinating the undergrad and postgrad units of hydrogeology and engineering geology as well as environmental geoscience. He moved to Australia coming from the University of Iceland where from 2007 to 2011 he was the Project Director of the Icelandic partner of the international Carbfix consortium. The Carbfix project is about capture of CO2 from geothermal activities and subsequent sequestration into basaltic terrain (www.carbfix.com). Among his responsibilities there was the set-up and direction of a high P/T lab for the execution of experiments related to water-rock interactions in the presence of CO2. Prior to that position he was a Research Scientist at UC Riverside and UC Merced in the US studying the CO2 drawdown capacity of the Higher Himalayas and the biogeochemistry of uranium. Domenik started his career with a PhD in environmental geochemistry from the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz in 1997.
