I have known and worked with Rodrigo Miranda for approximately 6 years and plan to continue my professional relationship with him well into the future. We have completed several METSIM simulation projects together focused mainly on steady-state heat and mass balances for iron ore processing, but also some dynamic simulation and hydrometallurgical base metal projects as well. Rodrigo’s in depth understanding of mineral processing and advanced control logic on a theoretical level, coupled with his experience in operations, has amply prepared him for the role of project and simulation consultant. Professionally, and personally, he possesses a calm, patient demeanor making him very easy to work with. Rodrigo is an asset to any project, whether as an individual or as part of a collaborative effort.
