Dr Fink is the Director and a Trustee of the London Institute. His research is on statistical physics, combinatorics and evolvable systems.
Dr Thomas Fink is the founding Director of the London Institute. He studied physics at Caltech, where he won the Fisher Prize, and did his PhD at Cambridge. He went on to do a postdoc at École Normale Supérieure in Paris and was a Junior Fellow at Caius College, Cambridge, working on statistical physics at the Cavendish Laboratory. While in Paris, he became a Chargé de Recherche in the French CNRS. In 2011, Dr Fink founded the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences—the UK’s first independent research centre for theoretical physics and mathematics, where researchers can do research full-time. Ten years later, the Institute moved into rooms at the Royal Institution in Mayfair.
In his research, Dr Fink uses statistical physics and discrete mathematics to form basic science insights into physical and biological systems.
