Solving 2D Unconditional MFPT Problems with Arbitrary Confining Geometries

The average time taken for a particle to move at random from its starting position to a target location is known as the Mean First Passage Time (MFPT). The MFPT is a parameter of growing interest in a number of physical phenomenon including neuron dynamics, diffusion limited reactions and search processes. The research aims to understand how the confining geometry of a 2D random walk affects this important parameter.

Nicholas Maurer is currently in his 4th year of a dual program in Mechanical Engineering and Physics at the University of Queensland. From a young age he has been fascinated with how the world works and this curiosity led him to his current field of study. Nicholas enjoys applying his knowledge of mathematics and physics to real world problems, particularly numerical modelling and simulation. These ideas play important roles in his current research in diffusion and Mean First Passage Time problems. In the future, Nicholas hopes to pursue PhD studies in the area of sustainable energy technology.
