PhD Project Title: Mechanisms for aerosolisation of microbial particles from liquid surfaces – understanding fluid mediated transmission pathways of infectious diseases

Background

Graduated in 2014 from University of Leeds, BSc Mathematics.

After graduation I took a year out to work in Austria as a chalet host and complete a ski season, after this I travelled Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

Research Interests

At the moment I am unclear what research area I would like to get into. But I am very keen in moving towards the engineering side and looking into an industry based PhD.

Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics

Coming from a mathematical background I chose the CDT because of the interdisciplinary element as it gave me a great opportunity to develop my skills in many areas. It also appealed to me because of its strong links with industry and that I get to work with a cohort of students as we will be able to learn off each other and support each other through our PhD's.
