CO2 Sequestration by Mineral Carbonation with Valuable Metals Recovery Enhancement

Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?

I like researching very much and I would like to become a professor in the future. My social value is to try my best to make a contribution to our society and to our earth.

Why did you decide to study at UBC?

Hydrometallurgy is one of the highest priority research areas at the University of British Columbia. The University of British Columbia and the Department of Materials Engineering have a rich history in the field of hydrometallurgy. Furthermore, Professor David Dreisinger is the chair holder of the Industrial Research Chair in Hydrometallurgy at the Department. His research interests lie in the area of technology development and technology transfer in the hydrometallurgy field. He has abundant research experiences and acquainted with hydrometallurgical practice. Therefore, it is possible for me to combine hydrometallurgy and a cutting edge of research in environmental protection together. It allows me to achieve my social value.
