About me

Thomas Draper completed both his BSc and MSc in Chemistry at the University of Bristol, focusing on catalysis and air-sensitive inorganic synthesis. He earned his PhD at the University of Sussex in 2016. His PhD, situated at the inorganic/physical border, involved air-sensitive organometallic synthesis, small molecule activation, heterogeneous photocatalysis, and nanotechnology.

Afterwards he worked as a Post-doctoral Research Associate with Professor Andrew Adamatzky at UWE Bristol, studying the creation, optimisation, and use in unconventional computing, of liquid marbles. He then joined Dr Juan Pérez-Mercader’s group at Harvard University as a Post-doctoral Fellow on the “Top-down Synthesis of an Ex-novo Chemical Artificial Living System” project, focusing on molecular Turing Machines.

He is now a Research Fellow in the Health Tech Hub at UWE Bristol, and custodian of the Prototyping lab.
