SoS RARE Project Administrator


I am the project administrator for SoS RARE - a consortium project funded by NERC  and EPSRC under the Security of Supply of Mineral Resources (SoS Minerals) science programme,  running from 2015 to 2019. The project aims to improve understanding of how the rare earth elements (REE)  are concentrated in natural systems, and use this information to investigate more efficient and environmentally friendly ways to extract and recover the REE. My research areas include REE mineralisation in and around carbonatites complexes in Namibia
