enhanced Methodologies for Advanced Nuclear System Safety
This project will develop a multi-disciplinary framework for uncertainty quantification in
three key areas of nuclear engineering:
1. Reactor Physics
2. Structural Integrity
3. Fuel performance
Dr. Simon Middleburgh
Simon is a Reader in nuclear materials and joined Bangor in 2018 having previously held positions with Westinghouse and ANSTO.
Dr. Michael Rushton
Michael is a senior lecturer at Bangor Univeristy with interests in the atomic scale modelling of materials.
Prof. William J. Nuttall
Bill is Professor of Energy at The Open University. Originally trained in physics his professional focus is at the interface of technology and policy with a particular interest in nuclear energy (both fission and fusion).
Prof. Robin Grimes
Robin Grimes is the Steele Chair of Energy Materials at Imperial College and Foreign Secretary of The Royal Society. From 2017 to 2021 he was Chief Scientific Adviser (nuclear) to the Ministry of Defence.
Prof. Geoff Parks
Geoff is a Professor of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Cambridge with interests in the computational design, optimization and analysis of reactor systems.
Prof. Edoardo Patelli
Edoardo a is Professor of Risk and Resilient Engineering at the University of Strathclyde. His research interests are on uncertainty into complex computational models.
Prof. Christopher Truman
Chris Truman is Professor of Solid Mechanics at the University of Bristol. He has been active in structural integrity research for over 20 years and has been involved in the EPSRC UK-India programme since phase 1.
Prof. James Marrow
James Marrow is the James Martin Professor of Energy Materials at the University of Oxford, and a fellow of Mansfield College. His research interests include the degradation of structural materials for nuclear energy, such as graphite and ceramic composites.
