Dr Thomas Fink is the Director and a Trustee of the London Institute and Charge de Recherche in the French CNRS. He studied physics at Caltech and Cambridge, winning the Fisher Prize for physics and Green Prize for research. He did a postdoc at Ecole Normale Superieure and was a Junior Fellow at Caius College, Cambridge, where he worked at the Cavendish. Fink uses statistical physics and discrete mathematics to form basic science insights into complex physical, biological and socioeconomic systems. Outside of physics, he is interested in models of simplicity, collective creativity, graphic design and mobile technology startups. His books The 85 Ways and The Man's Book have sold 1/3m copies.
