RESEARCH INTERESTS
I have more than 27 years research and development experience in the field of minerals beneficiation, with a particular focus on the environmental challenges and issues peculiar to the industry. A specific area of specialisation pertains to the management of solid wastes and residues from the processing of primary metal ores and coal, including their generation, characterisation, environmental impact predictions and down-stream utilisation. My over-arching career objective is to actively contribute to the sustainable development of mineral resources, through the implementation and support of appropriate research initiatives, as well as human capacity development and training.
