Dr Stephen Rippington

Director, Astute Geoscience


I have a broad background in geoscience research and consulting. My expertise is centred in the field of tectonics and structural geology, with substantial experience in the integration and interpretation of seismic and potential field data, remote fieldwork (Arctic, Mongolia, USA), sedimentology, petroleum geology, geochemistry and geochronology.


I am strong advocate of taking a multi-disciplinary, multi-dataset approach to solving geological problems.
