I started my university life at Monash Uni in 1984 as a young mother / ‘mature-age’ student, completing my B.A. with combined Honours in History and Geography. I then combined my interest in Victoria’s gold-mining history, physical geography, and (the then new field of) G.I.S in my M.A. thesis, graduating in 1996. My thesis, and ongoing interest, centres around the effects of the extensive gold-mining on the Victorian landscape, both at the time and in the long-term/today. From the early 1990s until my retirement in late 2009 I was a Research Assistant, then Associate, in the School of Geography & Environmental Science’s G.I.S Lab, working on G.I.S projects, and building and maintaining websites for numerous on-line subjects.
