Personal Statement

Dr Katherine Tant was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1988. She received her BSc Honours degree in Mathematics from Heriot-Watt University in 2011 and her Ph.D from the University of Strathclyde in 2014. Her Ph.D thesis was on the mathematical modelling of scattered waves for application to ultrasonic NDT and involved collaboration with staff at the Centre of Ultrasonic Engineering at Strathclyde (CUE). The work was funded through the UK Research Centre in NDE Targeted Programme by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (grant number EP/I019731/1) and was additionally sponsored by AMEC, NNL, Rolls Royce, Shell and Weidlinger. Dr Tant currently works as a research associate within the department of Mathematics and Statistics but retains close links with CUE. Her research interests include scattering theory, the study of elastic waves in heterogeneous media, inverse problems and ultrasonic NDT.
