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 in other work, 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 a Advanced Research Fellowship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research which he took up in the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering. He became a lecturer in 2005 and a senior lecturer in 2010.
His teaching includes first year degree courses in Circuit Analysis and Interactive Systems. He also supervises final year and MSc projects.
His research work is based on multidisciplinary studies of the electromagnetic properties of materials. Most recently this has involved deposition and analysis of thin films of ferroelectric and related oxides. Tim has travelled extensively, for research work and for conferences and meetings, to Switzerland, Italy, Finland, the USA, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Malaysia and Korea.
