Dr Ataollah (Ata) Nosrati

This page is being maintained in honour of our dear colleague, friend and lecturer in chemical engineering, who sadly passed away in May 2019. The School is privileged and proud to have had such a dedicated, passionate and gentle person as one of its lecturers. Ata is very much missed by his colleagues, friends and students.

Ata will be remembered for his energy, enthusiasm, commitment and reliability.

In memory of Ata, we wish to keep this page open.

Units Ata Taught

  • ENS2115/ENS6166 Process Engineering Fundamentals
  • ENS5556 Heat and Mass Transfer
  • ENS5166 Process Design
  • ENS5161 Environmental and Process Risk Management

Ata’s Background

Ata was a chemical engineer and metallurgist with over 15 years of industrial and academic research experience in chemical engineering, materials science and mineral processing. During the last 10 years, he was involved in multiple applied and fundamental project activities at Edith Cowan University and the University of South Australia, all with problem solving and process optimization nature.

Ata was very passionate about training high quality chemical engineers and research scientists through teaching and supervision of undergraduate and HDR students and also strove for novel and multidisciplinary research projects in collaboration with different industry and academic partners.

Ata’s Research Areas and Interests

  • Materials Science: Synthesis of new materials (e.g., polymers, chemicals, additives) using Vortex Fluidic Device (VFD)
  • Mineral Processing: Leaching/dissolution of mineral ores; Agglomeration; Dewatering; Acidic mine water neutralization
  • Rheology: Rheological characterization of complex fluids and materials
  • Water purification: Design and development of hybrid adsorbents for selective and clean recovery of metals from solutions
  • Separation Science: Development of novel and cost-effective separation processes for different industrial or medical applications (e.g., solvent extraction, gravity separation, cell isolation)
  • Nanofluids: Development of stable nanofluids with enhanced properties for different applications
