Dr Thomas Elsden

  • Leverhulme Early Career Fellow (Mathematics)

Biography

I did my PhD in the Solar and Magnetospheric Theory Group in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews, entitled 'Numerical Modelling of Ultra-low Frequency Waves in Earth's Magnetosphere', graduating in June 2016. I stayed there for 3 more years as a post doctoral research associate, before moving to the University of Leicester to take up a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship in October 2019. I transferred the final year of the fellowship to the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow, starting in October 2021, continuing on to a Rankin-Sneddon Fellowship in October 2022.
