About Thomas Williamson

I’m a Postgraduate Research Student at Durham University, specialising in soft matter and biological physics.

For my Laidlaw Scholarship research project, I worked on a project to determine the mechanical properties of bimolecular condensates in the cytoplasm of cells. Specifically, I developed simulations to test our assumption in the main analysis pipeline that all condensates were imaged at their equator.

For my LiA, I will worked as an assistant instructor on the Elevating Agricultural Technology programme with the Timothy Smith Network in Boston, teaching 3D modelling and 3D printing

I LOVE talking about anything related to physics / technology and am also really passionate about education and F1, amongst other things!

I hope you share this with Mr. Rumney @Thomas Williamson. I am sure he would be so pleased and proud. As you now know, being a teacher can be exhausting, and knowing that you have influenced someone's life who has gone on to do such fabulous things, and will indubitably do even more, will be a tonic for his soul. Plus everyone likes recognition!

Thanks@Susanna Kempe, I will do!
