James Newling

James was born and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. After studying pure maths and statistics at the University of Cape Town (UCT), in 2009 he spent half a year teaching school maths in Nepal.  In 2010 he joined the cosmology group at AIMS to work on supernova classification while pursuing a masters in applied maths at UCT.

What inspired him to study science, and astrophysics?

Actually he started out in the commerce faculty at UCT, but quickly realized that science was far more to his liking and has not looked back since changing.

  • Statistical methods in cosmology
  • Heuristic nonlinear optimisation
  • Numerical methods in Python
