Who is Adam Thompson?
Hi, I’m Adam, a scientist and activist with a history of organising campaigns in the community.
Outside of politics, I’m a research scientist working in manufacturing engineering, developing advanced manufacturing technologies for measuring high-value products; primarily working on precision and additive manufacturing applications.
I have worked for several years in the scientific and manufacturing communities and have worked with key players in the manufacturing industry, from Rolls Royce to the High-Value Manufacturing Catapult.
I hold a strong advocacy for increasing the number of expert voices in local and national government and the general science-literacy of British politics.
I am currently heavily involved in the development of science policy for the organisation Scientists for Labour. I believe in implementing well-reasoned, scientifically-sound policy and have been doing what I can over the past year to contribute to our national response to the COVID-19 pandemic by co-leading a team to collate the latest science and present it to politicians and the public in an easily digestible format.
I am known locally for my ability to provide reason and measured debate; I am often able to facilitate consensus between people with differing opinions.
I care very much about restoring our NHS, stopping climate change and getting a good deal for my community in Long Eaton, where I live. I have lived in Erewash since 2015, and in my current house in Nottingham Road ward for the last 18 months.
Prior to my current career, I trained as a secondary science teacher and feel very strongly about improving the quality of the education system.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on my campaign and your hopes for the future of our country. Either send me a message via Facebook, or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll reply as quickly as I can.
