UGPN awards PhD studentship for joint project between Wollongong and Surrey

The University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) has awarded a fully-funded PhD Studentship to James Rowe, a final year MMath student in Mathematics at Surrey. The studentship funds a project on “Dispersive solitary waves in colloidal media“. The supervisors at Wollongong are Tim Marchant and Noel Smyth (Edinburgh/Wollongong), and the supervisors at Surrey are Tom Bridges and Bin Cheng. The project was planned to start this summer at Wollongong but travel restrictions have pushed the start date to January 2021. The picture below shows the Wollongong campus.
