Ghislain Bournival

Senior Research Associate (Lecturer)
Lecturer

I completed two associate degrees in metallurgy (quality control and metallurgical processing) before heading to University where I received a Bachelor's degree in Materials Engineering from McGill University in 2009. I then completed a PhD in 2014 in the school of Chemical Engineering at the University of Newcastle on the use of colloidal particles in froth flotation. I joined UNSW as a research associate after the completion of my PhD, undertaking research in the field of mineral processing.

MINE1010: Mineral Resources Engineering - Main instructor for an introductory course to the field of mining engineering. Students get to apply their knowledge by working on application exercises on various aspects of mining.

MINE2810 (MINE8820): Introduction to metallurgical Processing - Lab demonstrator

MINE8680: Geotechnical Data Collection and Analysis - Teach the statistic component of the course

Another interest of mine is the good use of statistics in engineering and research. I have developed an online fundamentals of statistics course for mining undergraduate students.
