Jacob Mohau Mateyisi graduated with a PhD in December 2014. The work in his dissertation covered the diffusion of particles in narrow, laterally coupled channels. Previously he worked on active networks, using a reversible formalism and the replica method to compute the network elasticity.
2014 saw graduations of two PhD students
- Christian M Rohwer, with a study on entanglements in polymers
- J Mohau Mateyisi, with a study on diffusion in coupled single-file pores
and an MSc student
- Sthembiso R Gumede, with a study of polymer translocation
