Thomas’ research is supported by a fellowship from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. His postdoctoral mentor is Jesper Grodal.

Thomas’ research interests lie in abstract homotopy theory, with a particular focus on the theory of Goodwillie calculus. His current main project focuses on producing extra structure on the derivatives in Goodwillie calculus, with the aim of proving a generalization of the chain rule of Arone-Ching.

Thomas completed his PhD at Stockholm University (Sweden) under the supervision of Gregory Arone. Before that, he received his undergraduate degrees from Utrecht University (The Netherlands).
