Like so many others, Thomas fell into market research while on a different track of study. Initially aiming to understand how brains work as a neuroscientist, by the end of his degree he had realised that he was more interested in what people think than the physiology behind it. Moving into graduate psychology studies, he started working as a market research interviewer, saw an industry that lets you ask “why” on a daily basis, and the rest is history. In the nearly four years since he began working in the industry, Thomas has eagerly sought out work from a variety of different industries, across all the major quantitative research methodologies.
Thomas is passionate about finding the stories and unexpected results in data, and has a special interest in thought leadership projects and studies that inform programs and policies. Although he is a pesky millennial, Thomas has an old soul: his Instagram might be filled with photos of brunch (that nobody needed or wanted to see), but in his spare time he likes nothing more than doing some gardening or relaxing with a book.
