Biographical details

Patrice Rey was born in France on the same day Bob Dylan delivered "Blowin' in the Wind" to the world. Beside these two events, April 16th 1962 was a pretty uneventful day.

He has build an International career through his involvement with no less than 12 Universities and Research Institutions across three continents.

1981-87: Undergraduate studies: Université des Sciences et Techniques du Languedoc (Montpellier, FR)
1988-1992: Postgraduate studies: Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, FR) and École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (FR).
1989-91: Teaching Assistant: Université Claude Bernard (Lyon, FR)
1993-94: Postdoc Researcher: University of Wyoming (Laramie, USA)
1994-95: Research Associate: GeoForschundsZentrum (Potsdam, Germany)
1995-2000: Lecturer: Monash University (Melbourne, AU)
1996: Visiting Scientist, Australian National University (Canberra, AU)
2000- Present: Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor, The University of Sydney (AU)
2001, 2006, 2009, 2012: Visiting Professor, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (FR)
2005: Visiting Professor, Université de St Etienne (FR)
2006-2007: Professor 9-month contract, University of Minneapolis (USA)

Research interests

Patrice has contributed innovative ideas on a large range of subjects including:
• The origin of plate tectonics on Earth (Rey et al., 2014 Nature),
• The rifting and separation of New Zealand and Australia (Rey and Mueller, 2010 Nature Geoscience)

He has contributed novel ideas on the geology of the Archean, these include:
• The formation of Archean gold deposits: Thébaud and Rey, 2013 Precambrian Research.
The Flat Earth Hypothesis: Rey and Coltice 2008, Geology with a mention in Nature v. 454, August 2008.
The Waterworld Hypothesis: Flament, Coltice and Rey, 2008 Earth Planetary Science Letters, with a mention in the NewScientist, v. 2689.

Patrice has solved a 150 year old problem by proposing the first explanation for the formation of precious opal, Australia’s national gemstone (Rey, 2013 Australian Journal of Earth Sciences). This paper became the most downloaded of the journal, and he was awarded the 2013 Geology Society of Australia A.B. Edwards Medal from its Economic Geology branch.

In 2014, he co-lead a group of geologists, geophysicists and computer scientists to build the Basin Genesis Hub, a research group focussing on the formation of sedimentary basins. It is funded by a $5.4m grant from the Australian Research Council under the Industrial Transformation Research Hub scheme, and Chevron, Oil Search and Statoil.

In 2014, he became Fellow of the Geological Society of America, an honour that is “...bestowed on the best of our profession in recognition of distinguished contributions to the geosciences”.
