Personal profile

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. Since 2016, she has helped to attract over £575,000 of external funding to Strathclyde and, in June 2018, was awarded a 3 year EPSRC UKRI Innovation fellowship with industrial support provided by EDF, National Nuclear Laboratory, National Physical Laboratory, Onscale and Rolls Royce. Her main research interests include the study of waves in complex media, Bayesian probability, imaging and applied inverse problems, all with a focus on addressing industrial challenges. Dr Tant is an active member of both the Continuum Mechanics and Industrial Mathematics research group, and the Centre of Ultrasonic Engineering at Strathclyde.
