Gertrude Acquah

PhD Candidate

Gertrude's research aims at developing new knowledge in understanding the fundamentals of critical battery metal extraction from complex ores. Specifically, her study will focus on processing and extracting nickel and cobalt from laterite mineral ores and wastes.


Daniel Nana Nyarko

PhD Candidate

Daniel's research is focused on optimising coarse composite flotation in Hydrofloat. This project addresses key questions across mineral liberation limitations, surface chemistry, dry comminution, and selectivity.

Daniyal Shabbir Doola

MSc Student

Daniyal is researching the optimisation of grinding mills using acoustic sensors and machine learning techniques. 


Theophilus Amos-Judge

PhD Candidate

Theophilus' research aims at improving the understanding of comminution strategy on downstream process performance. A key focus is on dry comminution with links to downstream flotation and hydrometallurgical processes, unravelling opportunities for low-grades ores and wastes processing.


Elisabeth Maya Rosa

PhD Candidate

Elisabeth's research aims at extracting critical metals from low-grade resources. Particularly, this project will develop advanced beneficiation and extraction methods for rare earth elements in complex, currently uneconomical, low-grade resources.
