I have qualified with a BSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Pretoria, South Africa and an N.Dip in Performing Arts Technology from the Tshwane University of Technology, South Africa. I am currently finishing up my bachelors research project for my BSc (Hons) in Applied Analysis.
For my bachelors research project, I examined the application of Prokharov’s compactness theorem to the existence of the statistical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, following the work of Vishik, Komech & Fursikov.
I have not quite yet narrowed down my particular interests in the broader discipline of mathematics; however, mathematics education and the rigorous underpinning of applications of mathematics are two fields to which I put in a lot of thought and the former the impetus of this and other projects.
For projects that require computational methods, I prefer using Julia and R but I have experience with SAS and Matlab. I can also use C/C++ and I am actively learning Haskell. It is worth mentioning that most of my programming experience relates to the implementation of numerical methods such as finite difference methods and finite element methods. I have some experience in implementing optimisation methods such as quadratic optimisation for use in a support vector machine.
Outside of work and academics I keep fish, practise HEMA and sketch. All three of these are hobbies in which I would like to further extend and improve and so they might feature in some of my writing.
If you have a project on which you think I can be of assistance, feel free to contact me.
