Contact details


Tom took his undergraduate master's degree in mathematics at the University of Oxford, graduating in 2017. His master's dissertation, which concerned hyperbolic knot complements, was supervised by Professor Marc Lackenby. Tom joined the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (LSGNT) – a Centre for Doctoral Training jointly run by King's, UCL and Imperial College London – in 2018, and fully enrolled onto the PhD programme at King's in 2019, under the supervision of Professor Dmitri Panov.


Polyhedral Manifolds

Research interests

  • Polyhedral manifolds—triangulated manifolds with a choice of Euclidean metric on each simplex, defining a flat metric with conical singularities on the whole space. Particular interest in polyhedral manifolds with lattice-preserving holonomy
  • Polyhedral and discrete geometry, metric geometry, Riemannian geometry, and geometric topology
  • A side interest in the theory of elliptic curves
