I am excited to lead a dynamic team of academics here at Bangor University looking to advance nuclear technologies in the North Wales region. Nuclear energy has played a key role in the area for many decades and the end of the Magnox era has opened up great new opportunities with two exceptional nuclear licensed sites – Wylfa and Trawsfynydd on our doorstep – and a rapidly growing industrial and academic resource at Bangor University and our science park, M-SParc.
Since its inception in late 2017 – the Nuclear Futures Bangor group has built extraordinary facilities that are being used by leading industry stakeholders to aid nuclear technology development. We are ready and open for business.
