Sophie Abrahams

PhD student in applied mathematics

I enjoyed both maths and physics at school as they explain how the world works, and some amazing teachers helped to build my enthusiasm for these topics. I went on to complete an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Physics at UCL. During my degree, I chose to focus on applied mathematics as the tools and techniques can be applied not only to physics problems, but also biology, engineering, manufacturing, … the list is endless!  Currently, for my PhD, I’m collaborating with Boston Scientific, studying the bubbles created inside the kidney during the laser treatment of kidney stones. It’s exciting to be working on a collaborative project such as this, where I may get to see my work applied in the real world.
