Tim is a Senior Lecturer and the undergraduate admissions tutor in the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering.

Tim has published over 70 research papers in scientific journals and magazines, as well as editing a book. He works on research projects studying the electromagnetic properties of materials. Funding for this work has mainly come from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and Innovate UK.

Tim is also an enthusiast for communication of science and engineering. This has led him to participation in radio shows, writing for magazines, providing technical advice for television programmes, designing workshops for schools and working in science-based community theatre. He is an organiser of the West Midlands regional tournaments for the annual FIRST LEGO League competition. He is a frequent contributor to Outreach events within and outside the University.


Qualifications

• Fellow of the Higher Education Academy 2010
• PhD in Physics 1992 
• BSc (Hons) in Physics 1988

Biography

Tim Jackson qualified with a BSc (Hons) in Physics from Imperial College, London in 1988. He went on to research in High Temperature Superconductivity at the University of Birmingham leading to a PhD award in 1992. After a year away from academia he held research positions in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick (1992-1995), in the Department of Materials Science at Cambridge University (1995-1997) and in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham until 2000.

In 2000 Tim was awarded an Advanced Research Fellowship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. He became a lecturer in 2005 and a senior lecturer in 2010.
