:: Interview with Dr. Ahmad Ghahreman - The Role of Electrochemistry in Hydrometallurgical Processes


I am A. Deniz Bas, 2017 MetSoc Emerging Professional in Hydrometallurgy Technical Section. I regularly do short interviews with eminent scientist and professors on mining and metal extraction processes around the world. I am pleased to submit my most recent interview with Assistant Professor Ahmad Ghahreman of Queen’s University on the role of electrochemistry in hydrometallurgy. I believe that this interview would be useful and will especially encourage the undergraduate students who look forward to study metallurgy or related fields.

Ahmet Deniz Bas (Deniz): You are a well-known professor in hydrometallurgy and electrochemistry around the world. You teach hydrometallurgy and leading a very active hydrometallurgy research group at Queens’ University. Dr. Ghahreman, What would you like to say briefly about your work and academic life? How did you choose to start a career in hydrometallurgy? What was the main reason behind that?

- Ahmad Ghahreman (Ahmad): Hi Deniz. What would i say about my work and academic life? My response would be that I love what I do! Everyday I tell myself that I have the opportunity to make a difference today, and that truly is what I try to do. I have to say work and life balance is a bit difficult, particularly because of the travels and long work hours involved in mining business, but when you like what you do you never get tired.
