My Ph.D. research is focused on understanding the electrical thermal behaviour of metallurgical furnaces, supported by Norwegian research institute, Teknova. The goal of my project is to derive a mathematical model to explain the interdependent mechanisms that define the industrial process of calcination, which involves the heat treatment of anthracite, a source of carbon. In particular, I study how current propagates through granular material as it undergoes chemical and physical transformations induced by the high temperatures and mecahnical stresses present within the furnace.
More generally, I am interested modelling real-world processes, particularly problems involving material science and astrophysics. I have experience solving problems using homogenisation theory, complex analysis and perturbation methods.
I am a second year graduate student undertaking the Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM) CDT program.
