My research experience includes:

  • Interfacial and materials science (surfaces force interactions and measurement; wetting and electrowetting; adhesion; thin film drainage)
  • Corrosion (mitigation, flow accelerated corrosion, tribocorrosion)
  • Process plant metallurgy (mineralogy, flotation, dewatering, scale, solvent extraction, beneficiation and extraction of metals from oxides and other non-sulphide minerals)
  • Image processing for machine vision and interferometry
  • Instrumentation, mechatronics and software development

I have experience using the following instruments:

  • Surface Force Apparatus (SFA)
  • Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
  • Optical Tweezers
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (including cryogentic and EBSD)
  • Electrochemical tools (potentiostats, impedence analysers, rotating electrodes)
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)
  • Spray dryer
  • A range of process metallurgical tools for ore preparation, flotation, froth studies and leaching
