Tom completed his MPhys undergraduate degree at The University of Manchester in 2011. His PhD, under the supervision of Dr Sarah Haigh at Manchester, focused on the development of scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) – energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) tomography and its application in the 3D chemical imaging of nanoparticles.

Upon completion of his PhD in 2015, Tom remained at The University of Manchester as a postdoctoral research associate, undertaking research connecting 3D imaging across a number of length scales, including X-ray and electron microscopic techniques and investigating a wide variety of materials, from the degradation of metals to the structure of nanoparticle catalysts.

Tom’s research interests include the development of automated methods for acquisition and analysis of electron microscopy data, spectroscopic imaging and correlating imaging methods across length scales.

Tom joined ePSIC as an Electron Microscopy Scientist in May 2018. His role includes users support, maintenance and development of the electron microscopes, execution and analysis of experiments in collaboration with the users and the ePSIC team.
