Dr Gemma Mason

PhD, California Institute of Technology, June 2015


Originally from Christchurch, I attained a BSc with First Class Honours in mathematical physics from the University of Canterbury. I then studied at the University of Cambridge for a year under a Commonwealth Scholarship, doing "Part III" of the mathematics tripos with a focus in applied mathematics.

I did my PhD at Caltech in Applied and Computational Mathematics. My thesis title was "Full and Model-Reduced Structure-Preserving Simulation of Incompressible Fluids."

At present, I am working with Bernd Krauskopf and Hinke Osinga on four-dimensional chaos theory.
