Dr. Mykytczuk runs an interdisciplinary research program that uses tools in molecular biology, microbiology and biogeochemistry. Specifically, her work focuses on developing, optimizing and prototyping biomining and bioremediation technology. She has published over 25 research papers (H-index: 14) and has trained a total of 38 highly qualified personnel (HQP) since 2009. She has several ongoing projects related to AMD remediation using natural systems with industrial partners (BacTech Environmental, Vale, Denison Environmental Services Inc., and Glencore INO) and governmental support (OCE, Environment Canada, NSERC ENGAGE and CREATE programs). Her 5-year Industrial Research Chair will allow her to accelerate contributions towards improved metal recovery and remediation of mine wastes, both locally and globally.
