Jack Tyson MIET, MInstP
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. 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. In early 2019, he was awarded MIET status by the Institute of Engineering and Technology and MInstP status by the Institute of Physics.
Aside from research and development, Jack also teaches in undergraduate engineering and computer science labs and is the head of Mirror Park. 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.
