Tom graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BSc and MSc in Mathematics, before beginning a career as a modeller and analyst for a health economics consultancy affiliated to Swansea University. Over the next seven years much of Toms work was directed towards the health technology assessment of oncology, diabetes and haematology interventions, with a focus on trial-based analysis and its subsequent economic modeling and evaluation. Over this period, he developed an interest in modelling methods and analysis techniques and is pursuing his interests further with postgraduate study at the University of Exeter.
