Associate Professor Anya Reading received a BSc (Hons) in geophysics from the University of Edinburgh, UK, and was awarded a PhD from the University of Leeds, UK, for research on subduction zone structure in New Zealand. Following five years in marine and land-based geophysics with the British Antarctic Survey, she joined the University of Edinburgh as a lecturer in 1998. In 2000 she moved to Australia as a research fellow at ANU and subsequently joined UTAS as an academic staff member in 2007. Anya holds a joint appointment as senior lecturer in geophysics with the School of Earth Sciences and CODES.
Anya specialises in using, and developing, computational strategies for learning from data from the natural, physical world. This includes a range of approaches from the realm of inverse theory and computational data inference. She also works on innovative seismological techniques, including using ambient seismic energy, to find the structure of the crust and uppermost mantle. Previous field projects include a passive seismic investigation of the Pilbara Craton and Capricorn Orogen in West Australia and a multi-year field program aimed at understanding tectonic structure and evolution in the southern hemisphere continents. She extends her experience in a wide range of Earth science applications to the development of computational and field techniques in applied and environmental geophysics.
