Dr Christa Placzek

Senior – Hydrogeologist | Townsville

Dr Christa Placzek

Christa is a multidisciplinary earth scientist with specialist knowledge in geology, hydrology and aqueous geochemistry. Her recent research experience spans several practical fields, including mine site rehabilitation, and hydrogeology. She’s also highly qualified in isotopic geochemistry and the application of novel geochemical methods for forensic (i.e. contamination) applications. Christa’s expertise includes exploring better methods for environmental compliance at mine sites.

The aspect that Christa most enjoys about working at AGE is the really close-knit team in the Townsville office she works in.

Originally hailing from the United States, Christa and her family have come to really enjoy North Queensland outdoors. This keeps them rather busy and also a bit out of pocket, specially since her eldest son is keen on diving and her youngest loves to fish.
