Nana Kobina Amoako Amoah, a Ph.D. student in mining engineering, received the McPherson-Marks-Greuer Mine Ventilation Scholarship from the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME).
“This award not only recognizes Nana’s personal excellence in mine ventilation, but also acknowledges the education effort of Missouri S&T in training ventilation experts,” says Guang Xu, associate professor of mining engineering.
The scholarship is design to improve the mine ventilation profession through education of mining engineers and ultimately improve the safety and health of underground miners. One scholarship is awarded annually.
Amoah conducts research with Xu, including developing low-cost particulate matter sensors for monitoring coal dust in underground mines and using a novel method to improve the design of dust control devices. He is also involved in Xu’s NSF project that applies ventilation knowledge to improve indoor air quality and reduce COVID-19 infection risks in public indoor environments.
