Tommy grew up on the Wirral, England, a place that is home to the world’s best chippy and ice-cream shop.

He obtained MSci Hons in Medicinal and Biological Chemistry at University of Nottingham in 2019. His MSci project involved the design and synthesis of selective integrin antagonists for the treatment of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. After graduating, he has joined the group to start his PhD with the group focusing on Pd catalysed asymmetric alkylations, total synthesis of natural products, and organocatalysis.

Outside the lab he enjoys playing guitar, the gym, tennis, and rugby, he has also never been known to say no to a beer.
