PhD Title: Cycling aerodynamics
Supervisor: Dr. François-Xavier Li, Prof. Mark Sterling and Dr. Hassan Hemida
After obtaining her BSc in Mechanical Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), Danique started a master Biomechanical Engineering in the same institution. During her master degree she did an internship at the University of California, Davis (USA) studying bicycle handling. For her final graduation project she developed a multibody dynamics speed skater model. Danique started her PhD on cycling aerodynamics in February 2012 at the University of Birmingham.
