It was through his mother’s music teacher, Sir Frank Callaway, that Graeme Gilling first heard about the then School of Music at UWA.
Inspired by Frank to make the move from New Zealand, Graeme joined the School to pursue postgraduate studies in collaborative piano with Professor Roger Smalley. A little over three decades on, Graeme is now Head of Performance and Keyboard Studies at the Conservatorium of Music and inspiring the next generation of musicians.
Congratulations to Professor David Haig from the School of Earth Sciences for being awarded the Gibb Maitland Medal. The Medal is awarded for substantial contributions to geoscience in Western Australia, with particular consideration given to contributions that relate to the occurrence or discovery of mineral resources.
The Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG) is a not-for-profit mining research centre based at The University of Western Australia. The ACG has an Online Repository of Conference Proceedings that is a free, open access resource for academics and students.
It was created to provide access for industry, academics and students in the mining and civil engineering, seismology, geomechanics, geology and environmental fields to easily search, access and download highly technical, peer-reviewed conference papers, as well as importable citation information in various formats.
