Tom Ostler

Dr Thomas Ostler BSc Hons, PhD, MInstP

Lecturer in Physics and Admissions Tutor for Physics


Dr Thomas Ostler completed a PhD in computational magnetism at the University of York as part of an EU FP7 project working in the field of ultrafast spin dynamics and optical switching of magnetic materials using spin dynamics models. The research was aimed at developing theoretical models to understand the highly non-equilibriun dynamics of magnetic materials after the action of femtosecond laser pulses.

Tom joined Sheffield Hallam University as a Lecturer of Physics in March 2017 and is also the admissions tutor for the BSc Physics course. 

Tom's research expertise includes the use of second principles modelling in the form of spin dynamics and micromagnetic models, as well as, using first principles electronic structure calculations to parameterise Hamiltonians in a so-called hierarchical multi-scale approach.
