Thomas James
Thomas James is a Senior Fellow in Applied Physics at the European Centre of Nuclear Physics (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, where he is applying machine learning solutions to ultra low-latency data-processing using FPGAs. Thomas has worked on the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) since around 2014, specialising in data acquisition, fast particle selection, and event reconstruction in FPGAs. In 2018, Thomas graduated with his PhD in particle physics from Imperial College London, UK, where he developed a novel FPGA-based track finder for CMS. Prior to that, he obtained his Masters and Bachelors degree in physics with theoretical physics from the same institute.
