Flavio Andre's research is focused on novel separation technologies, predominently High Voltage Pulse technology.

Flavio's research focuses on advancing the HVP technology to achieve pre-concentration, pre-weakening and improved liberation of different types of ore using the continuous high voltage pulse device developed at the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC).

Flavio is a Civil Engineer from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil. He holds a MSc in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at COPPE/UFRJ (Instituto Alberto Luiz Coimbra de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa de Engenharia), Brazil. Flavio's background includes computational simulation of comminution equipment using DEM, optimisation of crushing circuits, investigation and implementation of a novel classification approach using dry rare-earth magnetic separation for the production of manufactured sand, industrial surveys and laboratory and pilot scale test work.
