Lucy Thomas
Technical Assistant

Lucy joined the Engineering and Tech group at Carpmaels & Ransford in 2018 after graduating from Lancaster University with a first-class Master’s degree in Physics. Her final year project was modelling glycolytic oscillations in yeast cells using an extension of the Kuramoto model.

Her project was awarded a research prize by her department, and she also received department prizes for outstanding performance in her first, second and fourth years. Lucy spent her third year in Leipzig, Germany, where she learnt quite a few German words to mispronounce. In Leipzig she developed an interest in biophysics and took part in an internship using an optical cell stretcher.

Lucy also completed an internship in the biomedical physics group at Lancaster University where she helped to develop a MATLAB app for analysis of nonlinear time-varying dynamics.

In her free time, Lucy enjoys art and design, hiking and casual sports with family and friends. She also really enjoys eating chocolate.
