I am a PhD student at Camborne School of Mines, Penryn Campus. I have an Engineering background and my research interest is in numerical modelling and visualization. I will be undertaking a PGR teaching assistant role for maths modules CSM1027 and CSM2179. I want to help students build confidence in understanding mathematics, gaining relevant skill, knowledge and the experience required to tackle both simple and complex real-life problems.
My main area of expertise is in the application of physics-based models to help understand the processes controlling the dynamics of active volcanoes, with a view to help improve eruption forecasting capabilities.My research focuses mainly on employing numerical modelling methods to analyse and interpret volcano deformation during episodes of volcanic unrest, including the incorporation of other multidisciplinary datasets (geological and geophysical). The obtained results are used to estimate the rate, timing, mechanism, volume and location of magma supply.
My name is Jane and I’m a PhD student at Camborne School of Mines. My undergraduate degree is in engineering surveying and for my PhD I am researching how machine learning and remote sensing can be applied to mining sector problems. My background is not in mathematics but I have to do a bit of it in my PhD - so I understand how easy it is to get totally lost. Hopefully I can help with some of the basics from CSM1027 to help you get back on track.
