Meet ‘Testing’ Tom – The newest member of the Inter Scientific team
Firstly, tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I was the National Amateur Champion Boxer whilst a student at University
What is your previous experience and how will you be putting this to use at Inter Scientific?
I studied a degree in pharmacy for two years at Nottingham University which I thoroughly enjoyed but believed I hadn’t quite found the right fit for me. So, I changed direction and went on to complete a degree in chemistry at the University of Liverpool as a mature student.
Prior to joining Inter Scientific, I worked in the chemistry industry. Some of my notable successes would be;
- Implementing numerous UKAS accredited testing methods
- Developing several products from polyethylene
- Varied exploratory work on hydrogels
I am really impressed with the diverse equipment within the laboratory at Inter Scientific and looking forward to using my skills and experience to benefit the team and ensure utmost satisfaction of our clients.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I have a passion for chemistry and I am constantly curious to see the results from developing, implementing and executing different test methods with chemicals.
Even after only a couple of days in the new role I get the feeling it’s a great place to work, with a supportive team and there will be new challenges ahead to keep me interested and on my toes.
