Agus P. Sasmito

Assistant Professor

Dr. Agus Sasmito is Assistant Professor at McGill Mining & Materials Engineering Department since 2014. 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 and cooling, 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 100 refereed journal papers and more than 70 peer-reviewed conference papers. In 2019, he was awarded the CIM-Bedford Canadian Young Mining Leaders Award.
