Tomi Baikie received his BsC in Mathematics and Physics from the University of St Andrews. He completed his thesis at the Cavendish Laboratory working with Akshay Rao and Neil Greenham at the University of Cambridge. Tomi’s PhD focused on ultrafast spectroscopy elucidating the nature of charges in photosynthetic systems, investigating electronic-ionic conductors through transient surface photo-voltage measurements, and a theoretical and experimental investigation into solar concentrating systems. He has previously worked with NASA on topics relating to solar magnetohydrodynamics. Further, he has broad interest in access to higher education and was a postgraduate fellow in the House of Commons Select Committee for Education.

Tomi is currently the NanoDTC Translational Prize Fellow which is awarded to exceptional researchers to carry out projects which enable the translation of cutting edge nanoscience research. His current research in the Bioelectronics and Cavendish Laboratories focuses on developing non-invasive techniques to understand the electrical properties of skin.

He is a Fellow and Director of Studies for Physics at Lucy Cavendish College.
