Awarded To: Jan D. Miller

for the paper “Three dimensional analysis of particulates in mineral processing systems by cone beam X-ray microtomography”
J. D. Miller is Chair and the Ivor D. Thomas Professor of Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Utah. He received his B.S. degree from the Pennsylvania State University, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Colorado School of Mines. At the University of Utah Professor Miller has devoted over 35 years to undergraduate and graduate instruction. During this time he has supervised the research of 88 graduate students who have successfully defended their theses. Professor Miller’s research covers the areas of mineral processing and coal preparation, specializing in particulate systems, aqueous solution chemistry, and colloid and surface chemistry. Additional research considers hydrometallurgy, flotation chemistry, particle technology and environmental processing technology, including wastewater treatment processes. Professor Miller is a member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME), The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS), and the American Chemical Society (ACS). He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards and this past year was recognized by Gdansk University of Technology with the Za Zaslugi Dla medal for special meritorious contributions as well as being recognized with a special symposium and proceedings in his honor at the 2005 SME Annual Meeting.
