Katherine Raymond, MSc
MSc Geological Sciences, University of British Columbia
BSc Hydrogeology, University of Waterloo
I am a Research Scientist for Dr. Uli Mayer working on the development and promotion of the reactive transport code MIN3P. Working for Dr. Greg Dipple, I use numerical modelling to supplement laboratory and field studies to investigate CO2 sequestration rates in mine tailings.
I received my MSc from UBC using MIN3P to compare the differences between waste rock pile construction methods and investigate capillary barrier effects in engineered pile cover systems. Previously I have worked for several years in environmental monitoring within the mining industry, which has helped me make connections between the research and modelling and applications to industry practices.
