Thomas was born in Charleroi, Belgium and got his master in Geography at the Free University of Brussels. In 2010, he joined the glaciology laboratory as a research assistant. He focus on monitoring variations in glacial and periglacial environments, in the Andes and in Patagonia. Part of his reserach focus on glacier mass balance and glacier hydrology. In 2019, Thomas got his PhD from the University of Bristol, England. His thesis focus on the use of seismc methods to characterise fractures in the shallow crust.

In May of the same year, he joined CECs again, where he aims to study the hydrological contribution from the different types of glacial forms in the Andes.
