Overview

Dr Farrokhpay is an Adj Associate Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering. He received his BEng and MSc in Chemical/ Polymer Engineering from Polytechnique University of Tehran and his PhD in Mineral and Material Engineering from University of South Australia (Ian Wark Research Institute) in 2005. His research expertise includes flotation chemistry, roth stability, effect of clays on flotation, rheology, and dispersion. He has worked previously in sulphide mineral flotation in AMIRA P260 project at Ian Wark Research Institute, and Optimisation of mineral processes by modelling and simulation in AMIRAP9 at the JKMRC. He has also managed several industrial projects in mineral flotation.
