Dr Lyudmyla Koziy is a research fellow in numerical fluid flow modelling based at CODES. She received her MSc (Applied Mathematics) from Taras Shevchenko National University (Kyiv, Ukraine) in 1992. For eight years she worked as a numerical modeller at the Department of Environmental Modelling of the Institute of Mathematical Machines and Systems (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine). She conducted research associated with the assessment of consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, simulation of sea-ice dynamics in Arctic seas and development of predictive models for oil spill simulation.
In 2006 Lyudmyla received her PhD from UTAS under the supervision of Professor Ross Large and Dr Stuart Bull. She worked on the development and implementation of a numerical model that would verify the hypothesis about the involvement of high-salinity sedimentary brines in the formation of stratiform sediment-hosted copper deposits of the Zambian Copperbelt.
Lyudmyla's primary research interests involve development and application of numerical models to better understand hydrological, thermal and mechanical processes underlying the formation of sedimentary ore deposits. The model that initially incorporated coupled fluid flow, heat and solute transport was then expanded to account for ongoing sedimentation and compaction in an evolving basin. The model was implemented to simulate the passage of fluids responsible for the formation of giant stratiform copper deposits of the Katangan Basin, Central African Copperbelt. The ongoing work is to upgrade this modelling tool to make it capable of simulating processes leading to the formation of orogenic type sediment-hosted gold deposits. Most recently Lyudmyla has joined the AMIRA International P843A GeM project and is currently working on the aspects of heap leaching hydrology associated with agglomerates (multiphase flow, multiscale continuum).
