Dietmar Müller

The University of Sydney

Dietmar Müller received his undergraduate degree from the Univ. of Kiel, Germany, and his PhD in Earth Science from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla/California in 1993. After joining the University of Sydney he built the EarthByte Research Group, pursuing the collaborative development of open-source software, open-access data sets and virtual globes. The fundamental aim of the EarthByte Group is geodata synthesis through space and time, assimilating the wealth of disparate geological and geophysical data into a four-dimensional Earth model. His innovations have led to a Laureate Fellowship and a succession of industry partnerships. Applications include mineral prospectivity maps and modelling the geodynamic history of resource-rich sedimentary basins around Australia and Southeast Asia. Dietmar is a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and the American Geophysical Union.
