Materials for Nuclear and Extreme Environments
The Materials for Nuclear and Extreme Environments research group was established in late 2017 with the generous support of the Sêr Cymru programme. As a core part of Bangor University’s Nuclear Futures Insititute our primary focus concerns the development of nuclear materials however we are materials scientists at heart and maintain general research interests spanning ceramics, metals, glasses and everything in-between.
Meet the Team
The group is led by Professor. Bill Lee who is Sêr Cymru professor of materials in nuclear energy and extreme environments. Bill is a joint appointment with Imperial College London where he is also Co-Director of the Institute of Security Science and Technology (ISST) and Chair in Ceramic Science and Engineering.
Postdoctoral Research Associates and Fellows
Alberto joined the Nuclear Futures Institute in July 2021 as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate. His main research revolves around the corrosion caused by liquid metals. He is also interested in the design of materials to be used in extreme environments.
Mehdi is a PDRA with an interest in atomistic simulations and numerical modeling of amorphous materials. His work at the Nuclear Futures Institute includes the application of glass science to the nuclear industry.
