Dr Junyu Wang’s primary interests are coal flotation, bubble generation techniques, laboratory-based experiment, graphical abstract creation and transformation of findings into presentation.

Junyu completed a PhD degree in Engineering at The University of Queensland in 2018. Her study focused on improving coal flotation performance using oscillatory air supply. She joined the Separation Team at JKMRC as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in May 2019.
