Me, Myself, and I

Hi there, my name is Thomas Elton, but I also like going by the name Tom, a tribute to my late grandpa! I’m a university student from Sydney Australia, where I’ve grown up all my life.

Me with my grandfather Tom Elton.

I’m fascinated by science, and I love to learn. Most recently, I’ve enjoyed delving into computer and data science, which is the field of study I’m currently pursuing at The University of Sydney.

I also love teaching, and enjoy tutoring high-school students in mathematics, as well as demonstrating data science to first-year tertiary students. Most recently, my love of teaching has seen me participating in education research, specifically around active learning, as well as how virtual reality can be used to aid teaching in the classroom.

In my free time, I love to spend time with friends and family! I also am a Christian, and love to spend time developing and reflecting on my faith!


Website Purpose

At the time of writing (2022), I’m preparing for a year-long exchange to the University of Pennsylvania in the United States of America. This sparked me to create this website so I could create a blog to share my experience with friends and family, but as well as with anyone who is interested. I’m going to use this blog as a process of reflecting on my time abroad, but also want to share my thoughts on other things as well.

The other purpose for this site is to act as a personal portfolio, where I’ll be able to disseminate some of the cool things I’ve been working on!
