**Master Degree in Mathematics (1st Class) at Durham University**

Final year project was about modelling musical instruments, specifically modelling a piano stirng. This involved deriving the equations of motion from first principles using Calculus of Variations and Theory of Elasticity. The solution to the equation of motion gave a frequency spectrum which showed that the piano is not a harmonic instrument, i.e. that the frequencies made by a string are not integer multiples of each other.

**Internship on drug diffusion through vitreous humour (Durham University).**

The aim was to create a satisfactory model of the vitreous humour inside the human eye, so as to determine where and how much of a certain drug is needed to be injected into the eye to ensure sufficient amount reaches the retina.
