Jesse Pritchard

PhD Student, University of Warwick

I graduated from the University of Bath in 2015 with an Undergraduate Masters in Mathematics (MMath), and completed my Postgraduate Degree in Mathematics (MSc) at the MASDOC centre at the University of Warwick in 2016.

Starting from October 2016 I am a PhD student in the Mathematic department of the University of Warwick, under the guidance of Dr. James Sprittles. The focus of my research is the modelling of complex surface effects in droplet dynamics, with current emphasis on simulating droplet impact on a solid surface coated in a superhydrophobic powder.
