Dr Tom Williams

Biography

I obtained a B.A. in Genetics (2007) and a Ph.D. in molecular evolution (2010) from Trinity College Dublin. My Ph.D. work with Mario Fares focused on the evolution of molecular chaperones in Bacteria and Archaea, and on the effect of chaperone-mediated buffering of destabilising mutations on protein evolutionary rates. From 2010-2015, I was a Marie Curie Fellow and then a Research Associate in Martin Embley's group at Newcastle University, working on phylogenomics and eukaryotic genome evolution. In 2015, I came to Bristol as a Royal Society University Research Fellow, first in Earth Sciences and now in the School of Biological Sciences. I am a member of the Palaeobiology and Biodiversity Research Group.
