Dr Tom WatsonSenior Mathematician
Tom is a senior mathematician at Endgame Economics. He has a particular interest in the theory of complex systems, and its practical applications to sustainability. Tom holds a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of New South Wales. His thesis focussed on ergodic theory, which is a branch of mathematics that studies the way systems change over time.
Tom is highly familiar with Linux-based environments, and has experience developing in Python and MATLAB, both for industry and academic research. These technical skills allow him to apply his knowledge to solve real-world problems.
Prior to joining Endgame, Tom worked for Kinesis — a firm which focusses on the sustainable development of cities, providing advice on matters such as energy efficiency, distributed generation, water usage, and urban planning.
