Fiona Doyle (Curriculum Vitae)
Donald H. McLaughlin Professor of Mineral Engineering
Department of Materials Science and Engineering
210 Hearst Memorial Mining Building, Room 325
University of California
Berkeley, CA 94720-1760
Fiona Doyle obtained her bachelor's degree from the University of Cambridge, and her master's and doctorate in hydrometallurgy from Imperial College, University of London. She joined the faculty in 1983. Her research focuses on solution chemistry in the processing and behavior of minerals, materials, wastes and effluents. The applications range in scale from the templated precipitation of nanoscaled structures, through chemical mechanical planarization in the electronics industry to the remediation of contamination at abandoned and inactive mine sites. Professor Doyle has taught undergraduate and graduate courses relating to engineering chemistry, mineral engineering, surface properties of materials, solution processing of materials, corrosion, and electrometallurgy. She has consulted for such companies as Unocal, BHP, General Electric, Alcoa, Rodel and Viacom.
