Kit Windows-Yule graduated with an undergraduate Masters in Physics from the University of Birmingham in 2010 and stayed on to complete his PhD, studying under Professor David Parker in the University’s Positron Imaging Centre (PIC), in 2015. During this time, Kit became an expert in the application of positron emission particle tracking (PEPT) to the study of granular and particulate media.
Following his graduation, Kit travelled to the Netherlands to work in the University of Twente’s Mechanical Engineering faculty, where he acquired a knowledge of numerical methods, in particular the discrete element method (DEM), providing a valuable complement to the experimental methodologies learned in Birmingham.
In 2017, Kit undertook his second postdoctoral post in the Chemical and Biological Engineering institute at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, adding to his repertoire further experimental techniques, including x-ray tomography, x-ray radiography and particle tracking velocimetry (PTV).
Finally, in 2018, he returned to his Alma Mater, to take up his current post as Lecturer in Chemical Engineering.
