Tom completed a BSc in Neuroscience at the University of Bristol, which covered a wide range of bases including cellular, systems and cognitive neuroscience. Topics that Tom found fascinating were; cognition, pain, and the plasticity mechanisms underlying learning and memory.
For his masters, Tom studied Educational Neuroscience (MSc) jointly at Birkbeck and UCL Institute of Education. For his dissertation he investigated how variation in combined spatial and temporal perception explain ability to form concepts and reason about scientific phenomena. More generally, this degree introduced him to key methodology and concepts in interdisciplinary research; spanning education, psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
Tom will join the ONACSA project as a PhD in September 2022 and his future research interests include (but are not limited to): entrainment, early attentional mechanisms, infant free-looking behaviour, conceptual development, and plasticity.
