I graduated from Writtle Agricultural College in 2010, with a First Class Honours in Conservation and the Environment. After graduating, I worked in a small Mayfair fund of hedge funds in the finance team, before going back to study in the Energy Futures Doctoral Training Centre at Sheffield.
Working within the Particle Technology Group under the supervision of Rachel Smith, my research involved the study of high frequency pulsed flows in fluidised beds in processes such as drying. I graduated in 2017 with my thesis titled ‘The impact of high frequency flow pulsation on fluidised bed drying’.
