Tom Sherry earned a B.Sc. in Mathematical Science in 1971, an M.Sc. in 1972 and a Ph.D. (Theoretical High Energy Physics) in 1975 from University College Dublin. He had a three-year post-doctoral position at the Center for Particle Theory at the University of Texas at Austin from 1975 until 1978 and one year Visiting Scientist position, 1978 - 1979, at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste. Tom joined the Department of Mathematical Physics in 1979. He spent the year 1985 as a Visiting Professor at the University of Western Ontario while on sabbatical leave. Tom has collaborated with many theoretical physicists and mathematicians at other institutions since his arrival at the department. During June 2001, he participated as part of an international collaboration in a visit to the Japanese High Energy Physics Accelerator Facility, KEK, at Tsukuba.

**Research Interests:** Tom has published widely in Theoretical High Energy Physics on areas such as unified gauge theories and renormalization, supersymmetry, regularization of quantum field theory models, classical solutions of quantum field theory models and B-physics phenomenology.
