Tom read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, studying chemistry and physics before specialising in Materials Science with areas of study including: thin films, energy harvesting, thermodynamics, biomedical materials, materials for optoelectronic devices, and nuclear materials. Tom’s Master’s project involved the study and construction of sustainable composite structures for use in magnetoelectric energy harvesting devices and free standing thin films for use in such devices.
Tom completed an internship at Cambridge Nanosystems, a UK leader in commercial graphene technology and also carried out a placement at the University of Göttingen in Germany where he researched avalanche dynamics in metallic glasses.
Tom joined Keltie after graduating in 2018 and is training to become a qualified patent attorney. Since joining Keltie, Tom has worked mainly in the Engineering team, dealing with a range of subject matter including automotive technology, renewable energy, marine structures, medical devices and glass processing and working with a range of clients from individuals to SMEs and multinational corporations.
