Bianca has an undergraduate and master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Stellenbosch University. During her studies, she specialised in agent-based simulation modelling, operations research, data science and analysis, and machine learning. Her final-year project involved modelling the spread of rabies in South African informal settlements, while for her master’s she applied machine learning approaches to the task of sentiment analysis in the field of natural language processing. Having explored a diverse range of fields, she decided to pursue a career in sustainability.
