Biographical details

Dr James Baker obtained a Master of Mathematics degree from the University of Oxford and PhD from the University of Manchester, before joining the Sydney Centre in Geomechanics and Mining Materials (SciGEM) in 2016. His research uses a combination of mathematical theory, numerical simulations and laboratory experiments to gain an understanding into the rich and diverse behaviour of granular media.
