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.

Studying my PhD as part of the ACM CDT not only provided me with valuable training courses and workshops on characterisation techniques, but also regular academic seminars, team activities, and discussions to help expand my interests, both inside and outside of research.
