I have a BSc (honours) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cape Town (2009-2012). I have an MSc in Applied Mathematics from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and an MSc in Scientific Computing from Technische Universität Berlin (2013-2015). My Master’s thesis investigated convergence of stochastic coagulating particle systems.

I am now a PhD 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. I am interested in numerical methods for solving the population balance equations that describe the synthesis of particulate materials.
