Research

Olofsson's research approaches the production of predictive accounts in mineral exploration and maps the processes through which mineral deposits are assessed and defined in the exploration process. Studying the process of exploration, Tobias asks how of predictions, (e)valuations, justifications and risk-reduction come together in, and help predict the outcome, of complex processes.
