Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science
Tom studied MMath Mathematics at the University of Nottingham 2007-11. He subsequently stayed at Nottingham to complete his PhD studies in 2015. Since then Tom has been a Teaching Associate in Nottingham and was recently promoted to Assistant Professor in a teaching-focused role.
Tom won a Lord Dearing Award for outstanding contribution to teaching and learning in July 2018.
Tom has a teaching-focussed role in the school, which involves development and dissemination of innovative teaching and assessment practices for Higher Education. He has a key role on several committees within the School of Mathematical Sciences that oversee curriculum development and enhancing the Student Experience. Tom teaches several mathematics modules aimed at Engineering students and coordinates support classes for first-year Honours Mathematics students. Tom is also also involved in several teaching support and outreach programmes both within the School of Mathematical Sciences and in collaboration with other departments across the University. As Student Experience Officer, Tom oversees the School's Learning Community Forum and other projects designed to enhance the student experience in Mathematics and across the University. Part of this role involves sitting on the School Teaching and Learning Board and Faculty of Science Student Experience Committee. Tom trains and coordinates the School's team of Postgraduate Student Teachers, who support a large proportion of our Honours and Service modules.
I have an active interest in Mathematics Education, mainly in the following two areas:
My research involved molecular simulation of nucleation of polymers using Monte Carlo methods. In particular, investigated the effect of placing polymers under flow during the nucleation process and how this affects the ease of crystallisation and the arrangement of polymer chains within the resulting crystal.
