Dr Tom Hazlehurst


I obtained my MMath, BSc in Mathematics from the University of Leeds in 2011, and proceeded to complete my PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2015 (Acoustic solutions to the particle mixing problem in aqueous dispersions) under the supervision of Oliver Harlen, Megan Povey and Mel Holmes.


Research interests

I completed my first research fellowship in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering working on Horizon 2020 project ProPAT (http://pro-pat.eu/), working on novel sensors for particle size measurment.

I am currently working between the School of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Computer Science as a Research Fellow on the Impact Acceleration and Design Configuration Spaces projects (https://configuration-spaces.leeds.ac.uk/), specialising on Deep Learning for design engineering applications.
