Research Interests

Primary Research Theme: Design and Manufacturing
Research Group/Lab : Comminution Dynamics

My main research interest focus is on the terrestrial mining industry which includes issues on mechanical equipment modelling, design and improvement, wear, energy efficiency and instrumentation. A secondary research interest focus is on the space mining activities as a means to not only explore mining in a larger context but also provide an opportunity to provoke innovation in the terrestrial mining industry.

Current Research Projects

  • Comminution Processes - Exploring abrasive ore breakage, wear and friction
  • Barrick Grinding Media Wear Research
  • Investigating Traction Systems For Lunar Rover Mobility
  • Investigating the development of a tri-cone drill bit wear monitory system (PI Professor Hasani)
