Graduate student takes home 2nd place at SME poster competition


A Montana Tech Ph.D. student recently took home second place in the graduate poster presentation competition at the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration annual conference in Denver, Colorado.

Amirhosein Riahi, who is studying Earth Science and Engineering, presented “Process Intensification for Carbon Sequestration by Resonant Vibratory Mixing.”

Riahi is originally from Tehran, Iran and he is advised by Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Richard LaDouceur.

“To take second place at an international conference like SME, with posters from all of the large mining schools, shows the level of research that Amir is accomplishing at Montana Tech,” LaDouceur said. “We already knew that Amir was a great student, it is awesome that the rest of his field also got to see his excellent research.”
