Thomas Williamson

I'm Thomas, a PhD student in the Department of Physics at Durham University, which is also where I completed my undergaduate degree.

My research is in soft matter and biological physics, focusing on biomolecular condensates or 'membraneless organelles', which are often high concentrations of particular proteins within a cell. In particular, we are looking to understand how the structure and composition of condensates affects their mechanical properties and develop techniques to measure these. Most of my work is computational at the moment, though I work very closely with experamentalists (particularly in biology).

I am a member of Halim Kusumaatmaja's group in Durham but also work very closely with Sushma-Nagaraja Grellscheid's group at the University of Bergen in Norway.
