Professor Allan Pring is Distinguished Professor of Chemical Mineralogy at Flinders University in Adelaide South Australia.
He has lived and worked in Adelaide for over thirty-five years and spent most of his career at the South Australian Museum as Head of Earth Sciences. He left the museum in 2014 to join Flinders University.
He has been a Visiting Fellow in Mineralogy at Trinity College, Cambridge (1999-2000) and an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Hamburg (1993-4).
His research interests focus on the physics and chemistry of ore deposit formation and his group has pioneered the development methods to study hydrothermal mineral forming reactions at high temperatures and pressures.
