Ph.D. Fellow, Rujeko Chinomona

From an early age Rujeko was fascinated by how the physical world worked. She began to find answers to her questions when she discovered the fields of physics and mathematics. Her love of these subjects has only increased with time and she is currently a Ph.D. student and University Fellow in the third year of her program in the Mathematics department at SMU.
