Thomas joined the Turing Institute in June 2021 as a Senior Research Associate. His background is in applied mathematics and engineering science, with a particular focus on applications in the life sciences, having studied for an MMath (2008) and DPhil (2015) at the University of Oxford. He joined the Turing from the Wolfson Centre for Mathematical Biology in Oxford, where he had been working on next-generation methods for connecting mathematical models with biological data sets, with a particular focus on developing multi-fidelity approaches to likelihood-free Bayesian inference.

In addition to postdoctoral research posts in the Mathematical Institute and Department of Engineering Science at Oxford, Thomas has previously worked in HM Revenue and Customs and the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy as part of the Government Operational Research Service.
