With over 10 years’ operational experience in the coal mining industry within Queensland and New South Wales, Karin has worked on a diverse range of technical issues. These include, biodiversity and conservation offsets, spontaneous combustion, mineral waste management, rehabilitation and mine closure planning and execution. Karin’s passion is aligned with integrated mine planning leading to successful mine rehabilitation and closure.

Karin currently is completing her PhD in environmental economics at the University of Western Australia. Her research involves undertaking an economic valuation of different post-mine land uses to assist in the decision making of mine closure options.  A coal mine in the Central Tablelands of NSW is being used as the case study.
