Background and activities

I am a PhD Candidate at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. My PhD project is a part of Controlled tapping. The main goal of my PhD study is to investigate different mechanisms of separation of Mn ferroalloys and slags involving experimental, numerical and computational fluid dynamics modelling.


  • Master's Degree in Non-Ferrous Metallurgy from Norilsk Industrial Institute (2014)
  • Industrial experience in pyro-, hydrometallurgical processes for Cu, Ni, PGMs production, waste treatment processes and surface treatment of steel from Norilsk Nickel (2014-2016) and CLAAS (2017-2018)


  • Heat and mass transfer (TMAK2007, 2020)
  • Advanced heat and mass transfer (TMT4208, 2020)
  • Metal Production - Ferroalloys, Iron and Steel (TMT4306, 2018-2020) - Cu production
