RESEARCH INTERESTS
Her research interests are with the field of flotation chemistry and specifically under two focus areas:

1.   The first major focus area is that of water with the flotation system; this research focus is gaining attention from many industrial partners and leaders within the minerals industry and as a somewhat neglected field, it is of vital importance that it be considered and the effects thereof noted for the community as a whole.

2.  The second focus area is that of the chemistry within the grinding environment. The chemistry within the mill has a significant impact on the downstream flotation process as well as impacting the surface properties of the particles which are generated through milling.
