Bio/Research

From a young age I was interested in geology, but was more interested in the production

of minerals and chemical processing technologies. Mineral processing provided a means

to study and work in both areas and so determined my choice of study at UBC for both an

undergraduate degree and PhD degree. After completing my Ph.D. degree I spent eight yearsas a consulting process metallurgist.

Then Rick Lawrence, Department Head at the time, invited me to apply for an opening

on the faculty of what was then Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering. I saw in the

invitation two opportunities: one was to expand the type of work I had been doing in

consulting; and the other was to contribute to the future of the Department and the industry in a positive way.
