Title of PhD: Correlation between English Permo-Triassic Sandstone lithofacies and permeability and its importance to contaminant transport in groundwater

Supervisors: Professor John Tellam, Dr James Wheeley and Dr Alan Herbert

Ban To is undertaking doctoral research into the relationship between sandstone lithofacies and permeability in the Permo-Triassic sandstone sequences. The project involves examining the strength of correlation between Permo-Triassic sandstone lithofacies and permeability, and determining whether the correlation found can be used to improve predictions of solute transport in groundwater.

Qualifications

1997- 2001: BSc Geology (University of Mining and Geology, Vietnam)

2007-2008: MSc Hydrogeology (University of Birmingham, UK)

Biography

Ban To completed his BSc in Geology at University of Mining and Geology (HUMG), Hanoi, Vietnam in 2001, then worked as lecturing assistant and lecture at the University of Mining and Geology until 2006 before being awarded a grant from Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to study MSc Hydrogeology at University of Birmingham in 2007-2008. After completing his MSc in Hydrogeology, he went back to his lecturing work at HUMG. In 2012 he was awarded a scholarship from MOET to do a PhD research in Hydrogeology at the University of Birmingham.
