Researcher biography

Hayla Miceli is a metallurgical engineer working in the link between communtion and flotation

Hayla is currently undertaking her PhD in Minerals Engineering at the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC). Her research aims to develop a methodology to characterise breakage response and mineral liberation using the primary breakage mechanism to provide information that could be used to simulate grinding flowsheets.

Hayla completed a BSc in Metallurgical Engineering at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil, and a MSc in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at COPPE (Instituto Alberto Luiz Coimbra de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa de Engenharia) from the UFRJ, Brazil. Her background includes the optimisation and development of crushing circuits, the implementation of new independent circuits for the production of manufactured crushed sand and the development of processing routes for natural sands, surveying industrial circuits, modelling and simulating processes and conducting laboratory and pilot scale test work.
