Dr Tom Jordan


My taught education comprises a BSc in Physics with Theoretical Physics (University of Manchester, 2006), and a MSc in Meteorology and Numerical Modelling (University of Reading, 2008). I obtained my PhD degree from the University of Bristol in 2014, specialising in the optics of disordered biological media. My advisors were Prof. Nicholas Roberts and Prof. Julian Partridge in the Ecology of Vision Group, Biological Sciences, and the research was funded as part of the EPSRC Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences.

In late 2014 I changed research fields to radar geophysics and spent the next two and half years as a postdoctoral research associate in Bristol Glaciology Centre, Geographical Sciences. This research was part of the NERC funded project Basal Properties of Greenland led by Prof. Jonathan Bamber. From August 2017-present I have been a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow, funded as part of the Horizons 2020 program, joint between Stanford Geophysics (the Radio Glaciology group led by Prof. Dustin Schroeder) and the Bristol Glaciology Centre.
