PostDoctoral Research Associate



I am a postdoctoral research fellow working on the NERC Project "CoG3: Investigating the recovery of Cobalt". The project aims to increase UK's exploration, mining and recovery of cobalt, a metal of great strategic and economic importance. This project will look at the Geology, Geometallurgy and Geomicrobiology of cobalt resources leading to new product streams (CoG3). 

CSM is involved in WP4: Improving the Supply Chain of Cobalt. My research within WP4 will focus on improving the cobalt supply chain through investigation into the geometallurgy of cobalt with direct engagement of industry.

For more information on the project see: CoG3 website or the twitter account

Project leader at CSM: Hylke J Glass
