George starts MPhil at UQ

George Galis officially commenced his MPhil at the University of Queensland in October 2019. He will work on NiHard white cast iron for ore chute liners under the guidance of Dr Jeff Gates, researching advanced alloying additions to enhance the wear performance.

George recently obtained his Bachelor’s degree (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Queensland. His thesis was dedicated to the influence of alloy properties and testing conditions on the performance of white cast Irons in the ball mill abrasion test.
