Personal profile

Research

Within the Materials Science and Engineering research cluster at the University of Dundee, Dr. Jones investigates the development of new manufacturing techniques and processes by implementing devices such as Laser, additive manufacturing (3-D printing and inkjet) and traditional metal casting. From this he has implemented innovative light-assisted processing for the development of microelectronics onto surfaces, enabling the realisation of ‘smart-devices’, such as sensors within fabrics and additive manufactured materials, such as polymers and ceramics.

Dr.Jones supervises PhD students investigating high-efficiency, novel fuel cell development; the inkjet-printing of highly conductive Noble metals; and innovative wireless sensor manufacture onto wearable fabrics for spacesuits. He also oversees MSc and BSc student honours projects.

Dr. Jones’s research is closely tied to industrial developments and supported by UKRI and private sector organisations:

  • the Printed Circuit Board industry, developing original electrochemical manufacturing techniques and Ultrasound medical imaging devices
  • Microelectronics, the implementation of additive manufacturing of electronics features and devices
  • traditional metal casting, developing computer models of industrial processes for industry 4.0.

Teaching

Dr. Thomas D.A. Jones is a Baxter Fellow (Lecturer), in the School of Science and Engineering, at the University of Dundee. His duties are divided between teaching and research, where he lectures in Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Science, and contributes within the Materials Science and Engineering research cluster on the development of innovative production techniques and materials for industry.

Biography

Dr. Jones received a Bachelors of Science degree in Nanoscience from Heriot-Watt University, UK, in 2011, a masters of science in Nanoelectronics and Mechanics from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 2012, an Engineering Doctorate in Photonics and Optics Technologies from Heriot-Watt University, UK, in 2017, and a PgCert in Academic Practice (Associate) from the University of Dundee, 2019.
