The courses I teach have direct and indirect applications in real-world engineering problems. Undergraduate courses are directed more towards design, and graduate courses have more management content. I expect the students to attend classes regularly, and complete homework assignments on time.
Director, New York Mining and Mineral Resources Research Institute; Current research projects: -Orebody conditioning for insitu leaching of copper; Multi-class closed queueing models for open pit materials handling systems. Research Interests: Mining Engineering: Systems analysis and design, statistical rock characterization, statistical rock mechanics, probabilistic design. Statistics: Extreme value statistics and its, applications in analysis and forecasting of extremal data, primarily for engineering, and earth science applications (i.e., fatigue failure, breaking strength of rock, earthquake magnitudes, temperatures, floods, droughts, etc.)
