Maryam graduated in chemical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran in Jun. 2014. She joined PEARL in Jan. 2015. Her masters’ project is about quantifying rare earth elements by neutron activation analysis. She is working on improving analysis procedure for detecting rare earth elements for different separation processes.
Navid received his B.Sc (2010) and M.Sc (2013) degree in materials engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology and University of Tehran, Iran. Worked for 3 years in the field of NDT of welded joints, piping and materials selection he moved to Montreal, Canada and started his second master in Chemical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Jamal Chaouki in 2014. He is currently studying the Hydrodynamics of Gas-Solid Fluidization at Elevated Temperatures with collaboration of Total Group. In his project he is dealing with different tasks from troubleshooting of a pilot scale fluidized-bed to hydrodynamic measurements of fluidization at extreme conditions considering the effect of inter-particle forces.
Apart from his work and research he is/was also involved in a number of volunteer activities such as being a member of administration board of AECSP at Polytechnice of Montreal. In his free time he does photography and likes to go hiking, camping, kayaking and swimming.
Rémi is a final-year student at ENSIC – Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimique, a leading Chemical Engineering University in Nancy (France), preparing a Master Degree in Chemical Engineering. He is currently preparing a double Degree with a Master in Polytechnique Montreal (Canada). He joined Prof. Chaouki’s group and Prof. Bertrand’s group in January 2016. His master project is about modeling mass transfer in bubble columns.
