PhD Title


A new look at the critical material potential of polymetallic nodules using advanced imaging techniques

My research interest lies on understanding the mineralogy and geochemistry of polymetallic nodules using advanced imaging techniques and other analytical methods. Emphasis is placed on the assessment of the critical material potential of the nodules, in particular Rare Earth Elements and Platinum Group Elements.
