I joined the Department of Chemical Engineering as an undergraduate in 1997, having completed a year of Natural Sciences at Part IA. The subsequent three years spent in the department gave me a taste for research, and since October 2000 I have been working under the supervision of Dr Markus Kraft in the Computational Modelling Group here in Cambridge. My research has focused on population balances, especially those required to model multivariate systems such as wet powder agglomeration and liquid-liquid extraction columns. The stochastic methods I have developed promise much greater efficiency in the multivariate case than standard, deterministic methods can offer.
