Dr Hatton is known for his significant individual contributions to the development of technologies and their application to natural resource management and outstanding leadership in the development of water, marine and energy technologies and their application to management and influence on public policy. He chairs the Environmental Protection Authority of Western Australia. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Western Australia and a former member of the CSIRO Group Executive.
Peter Klinken is an outstanding medical scientist with many publications in leading international journals. His work has led to the granting of several current patents relating to tumour suppression, sumoylation control, transcription modulation and hormone disorders. He has led the establishment of the Western Australian Medical Research Institute. In 2008 he named WA Citizen of the Year and in 2014 he was appointed Chief Scientist for Western Australia where he has displayed great leadership in developing science policy.
Geological, geochemical and geophysical data sets are fundamental in attracting significant mineral exploration company investment and hence the development of new mineral resources. As Assistant Director, Geoscience Mapping (GSWA), Dr Tyler is strategically involved in the scientific design and implementation of WA’s $130 million Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS), focused on acquisition and rapid publication of high-quality, digital geoscience, deep seismic, geochemical and isotopic datasets relevant to exploration in underexplored areas. His impact is that this effort has resulted in more than 20 new mineral discoveries.
Professor White is the world’s leading expert on pipeline geotechnics. His contributions have transformed geotechnical practice in pipeline engineering throughout the offshore sector. He has developed new field and laboratory techniques to measure engineering properties of seabed sediments that are relevant to pipeline design; led joint industry projects that have transformed the geotechnical understanding and design methodology for pipelines throughout the offshore oil and gas sector; and pioneered a revolutionary flume for assessing pipeline and seabed stability during storms. A Cambridge-educated engineer, Professor White is a former ARC Future Fellow and was WA Young Scientist of the Year (2011).
