Background:

Thomas graduated from Loughborough in 2017 with a First-Class MEng degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. He remained at Loughborough to pursue a PhD research opportunity into 3D printed passive microwave components and circuits and their equivalent circuits. Thomas is now working as part of the ANISAT project with Prof. Will Whittow, Prof. Yiannis Vardaxoglou, Dr. Alexandros Feresidis, Prof. Mike Lancaster and Dr. Stephen Hanham in the development and measurement of metasurfaces and anisotropic metamaterials for satellite applications.

His research interests are in 3D printed passive microwave components and circuits and with the development of metasurfaces and anisotropic metamaterials.

Main research interests:

  • 3D printing
  • Artificial dielectrics
  • Dielectric property measurements
  • Distributed element circuits
  • Lumped element components
  • Metamaterials / metasurfaces

A list of his publications can be found here.
