Canada Research Chair in Urban Mining Innovation

My research lies at the intersection of “Process Engineering”, “Electrochemistry” and “Materials Science” and combines fundamental science and engineering principals to arrive at solutions for real world applications, including: Developing innovative supercritical, electrochemical, and hydrometallurgical processes for the extraction and processing of strategic materials including rare earth elements, platinum group metals, lithium, cobalt, and iron; Developing novel generations of post lithium of rechargeable batteries that can significantly address the sustainability challenges in terms of energy, environment, and materials; The design and fabrication of advanced materials with controlled properties including high temperature ceramics, hydrophobic and scalephobic surfaces, and functionalized membranes for solid-liquid extraction.
