Tom is a Patent Scientist with broad technical expertise including physical chemistry, optics, photonics, nanomaterials, and medical devices. He joined EIP from the University of Bristol where he was a research fellow in physical chemistry. His research included ultrafast spectroscopy, nanomaterials, and the applications of carbon dots and quantum dots, including in displays, light harvesting, and medicine. Much of his research was in collaboration with industrial partners, start-ups, and the NHS.
Tom’s PhD was in functional nanomaterials at the University of Bristol, where he researched light harvesting in photosynthesis; the design, synthesis, and fabrication of nanomaterials; and the study of the physical and electronic structures of carbon dots and quantum dots. Tom’s work has been published in various academic journals and he has presented at national and international conferences.
