Bonny Thawani did his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Vellore Institute of Technology, India. In order to pursue his passion for research and explosives, Bonny did an MSc in Explosives Ordnance Engineering from Cranfield University.
Following on from his MSc, Bonny decided to explore the use of modelling and simulation tools for defence and security applications. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Defence and Security with a focus on the security assessment of the use of hydrogen gas in domestic applications. This project also looks at the modelling and simulation of accident scenarios when transporting and using hydrogen fuel.
