Fatimah Alfadel

Imperial College London


Research Project: Chemical and molecular controls of stable metal fractionation during dissolution/precipitation
Supervisors: Dominik Wiess (ICL), Andreas Kafizas (ICL), Yves Plancheral (ICL), Stephen Skinner(ICL)

Fatimah graduated with a BSc degree in chemistry from the Pennsylvania State University, where she was sponsored by Saudi Aramco. During her BSc degree, Fatimah took senior-level intensive courses designed to enhance research skills in analytical and organic chemistry. Afterward, she joined Saudi Aramco where she explored water-related industrial activities. There, she developed an interest in geochemistry and isotopes to understand water-rock interactions. At imperial, Fatimah is a Ph.D. student in Professor Dominik’s group, investigating metal cycling during geochemical processes via metal fractionation and its molecular and chemical controls.

I really enjoyed my time as a member of the CDT-ACM. It provided the opportunity to gain experience with a wide range of materials characterisation techniques and to engage with the wider research community by participating in conferences and Outreach events.
