A huge congratulations to CPCL star researcher, Mohammed Al-Musawi, for recently defending his Ph.D. dissertation.
Throughout his time at WMU, Mohammed has worked on a number of projects in Qatar and the Michigan Basin. He has also been a huge help to our undergraduate researchers in the Advanced Earth Materials course. His Ph.D. project, which is largely funded by ExxonMobil Research Qatar, has produced some amazing results, and his study has the potential to upend our current thinking on dolomitization. His fascinating work is the subject of a handful of manuscripts that will be published in the coming year. In February, we will be saying so long, when Mohammed starts a post-doctoral research position at Yale University.
