Dr. Perumal at Mineralz treatment facility in The Netherlands

Senior Researcher/ Adjunct Professor (Docent) with more than 10 years of experience in the research, teaching, and project management within academia. Her main focus area is about upcycling industrial sidestreams into sustainable construction materials.
At present, She works on the treatment methods of incinerated ash and its application as granulated aggregate/ alkali-activated materials in earth construction.
She also works with mine tailings to improve their reactivity as a binder material/ ceramics and recycling of demolished concrete as secondary raw materials in concrete production.
In the future, Dr. Perumal would like to explore in the topics related to CO2 sequestration, circular construction methods, bio-materials, earth construction, and thermal energy storage, within the scope of construction materials!
