Mr Etienne Vos

Position: PhD Student Qualifications: MSc (Space Physics)

Etienne Vos obtained his BSc at the North-West University in Potchefstroom in 2008. He continued with his post-graduate studies in Space Physics at the North-West University to complete his PhD in Space Physics in 2016. During his post-graduate studies he has worked on heliospheric modulation research under the supervision of Professor Marius Potgieter, in close collaboration with the PAMELA research group. In 2012 he held a lecturing position in mathematics at the North-West University’s Vaal campus. From 2016 and onward he will continue with physics research at the SAAO, where he will be working on machine learning projects related to the SKA under the supervision of Professor Bruce Bassett.
