2 DICAM PhDs win MAECI Research Scholarships offered through International Cooperation

The recent PhD graduate Sara Kasmaee and PhD Student, Mohamed Elkarmoty - both from the ING-IND/28 Scientific Sector - are the winners of the 2017/18 Scholarships made available by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. Awarded on the basis of the candidates’ qualifications and the excellence of their project, as assessed by the Italian Embassies in IRAN and EGYPT, the scholarships will allow the winners to continue their research at DICAM.

After graduating in Mining Engineering from Yazd University (IRAN), Sara Kasmaee obtained a PhD at Bologna University’s School of Civil Engineering and Architecture with a thesis entitled “Geostatistical Modelling of Ore Deposits with Transitional Boundaries”.

The project that has earned her a MAECI Scholarship is entitled “Assessment of the Influence of Transitional Geological Boundaries on Geothermal Energy Exploitation”, and will allow her to widen investigation into geostatistical modelling characterizing transitional boundaries to sectors such as mining and georesources, with particular reference to geothermal sources.

A Mining Engineering graduate of Cairo University (EGYPT), Mohamed Elkarmoty, will shortly be discussing his PhD thesis at Bologna University’s School of Civil Engineering and Architecture.

The project that earned Elkarmoty the MAECI Scholarship is entitled “Rock Mass Fracture Mapping and Modelling using GPR for Evaluation and Production Optimization of Ornamental Stone Deposits”, and will enable him to further his research in Mining Engineering and Applied Geophysics, with particular reference to deterministic modelling of fractures by georadar, with the aim of optimizing block production at different working scales.
