I finished my B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Cape Town in 2012. I subsequently spent several months working in process control in the South African mineral processing industry before joining the COSSE (Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering) dual Master's program, funded by an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. From this, I have an M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and an M.Sc. in Scientific Computing from Technische Universität Berlin. My Master’s thesis investigated convergence of stochastic coagulating particle systems. I also did an internship at the Helmholtz Zentrum in Dresden (HZDR) during this period and my work there involved modelling slurry bubble column (SBC) reactors. I am now a Ph.D. student in the Computational Modelling group at Cambridge and a member of Churchill College. My studies are funded by a departmental studentship and a CARES scholarship.
