Jack Tyson 

Doctoral Researcher

Personal homepage

Jack is an electronic engineer from Crawley, West Sussex. Before joining the CDT-PV in 2018, he completed his studies with the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton where he began to specialise in nanotechnology and semiconductor device physics. His research interests consolidate subject fields such as materials science, semiconductor device physics, computational modelling and nanotechnology. Jack currently holds the position of Doctoral Researcher at the University of Southampton.

He was responsible for the creation of the first non-linear black silicon finite element model. This work is currently used by research groups at the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh to extend the impact of the study into the field of electronic engineering, whilst Jack focuses solely on physics-orientated studies at the University of Southampton.

Aside from research and development, Jack also teaches in undergraduate engineering and computer science labs and is the head of Mirror Park; an organisation he started in 2014 to design websites for it's clients, which include national organisations such as the UK Solar Energy Society and the PVSAT conference. To unwind, he spends a considerable amount of his time driving to new places or playing video games and guitar; all whilst drinking substantial quantities of coffee.
