First class Mathematics degree at University of Southampton.

Distinction level Masters for Operational Research at University of Southampton.

My Supervisors are Tiina Roose and Joerg Fliege and I'm studying plant root optimisation.

My Summer Project was to optimise ferterliser placement and root struture using models from Roose and Zygalakis for plant root growth in multiple dimensions. This was be done by using different optimising techniques, such as Kriging, to solve this multi-objective, multi-variable problem.
