Dr. Agus Sasmito is a tenured Associate Professor at McGill Mining & Materials Engineering Department. Having interdisciplinary backgrounds, i.e. a bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics, a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Postdoctoral experience in Mining Engineering, Sasmito's research and educational efforts have focused on advanced multiphysics systems for sustainable minerals and energy extraction. He established McGill Mine Multiphysics Laboratory and his research has spanned a wide range of scientific and technological development for mine ventilation, heating, cooling, freezing and drying, geo-energy, thermal energy storage, artificial ground freezing, slurry, paste and particulate flow, rock-microwave and other multiphysics modeling in mining and energy extraction engineering. Dr. Sasmito has supervised more than 25 graduate students (M.Eng. and Ph.D.) and postdoctoral associates and has published over 130 refereed journal papers and more than 80 peer-reviewed conference papers. He was awarded the 2019 CIM-Bedford Canadian Young Mining Leaders Award and the 2021 Pricipal Prize for Outstanding Emerging Researcher.
