Dr Olumide Ogunmodimu graduated with a Bachelor of Science (majoring in Physics) from Bowen University Iwo, Nigeria in 2008. He completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering (specialising in the areas of comminution and classification in mineral processing) at the University of Cape Town in 2017. He has over 5 years collective experience in academia and industrial research. Olumide joined the JKMRC in 2018 with his research focusing on comminution and classification using Discrete Element Methods (DEM), Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) and Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics as tools in his modelling methods. He combines his knowledge of natural science, advanced mathematics and process engineering in developing models to understand granular and fluid dynamics. Olumide has participated in numerous research projects on comminution circuit design and optimisation.
