Short biography of the visiting scholar

Thomas Pabst is a professor at the Department of Civil, Geological and Mining Engineering at Polytechnique Montréal. He is also the scientific director of the Research Institute of Mines and Environment (RIME), a joint research program created in collaboration with the University of Quebec in Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT), and six major mining companies. Prof. Pabst’s current research includes integrated mine waste management, in-pit disposal, circular economy applied to mining engineering, and effect of climate change on mine site reclamation.

Aim and scope of the visit

The objective of Prof. Pabst’s visit is to collaborate with the researchers at the division of Soil Mechanics at LTU on the evaluation of the durability of innovative materials in mining cover systems, using laboratory tests, field experiments and numerical simulations. The visit will strengthen the links between LTU and Polytechnique Montreal in the field of mining reclamation and circular economy applied to mining engineering. Prof. Pabst will be giving several seminars, a short course about numerical modelling and several field visits will be organized during his stay.
