As our scientific research advances, so does the size of the team that is working to deliver our compact spherical tokamak project.
We currently have a 40-strong team of people that are all playing a leading role in helping Tokamak Energy to realise a fusion-powered future.
From world-class fusion scientists and magnet engineers that ensure our technical development continues at an impressive pace, to the skilled business support professionals that keep our business running smoothly in the background, we a versatile and talented team that is setting the standard in fusion research.
Tokamak Energy is a challenging and rewarding place to work – as our employee testimonials highlight – so if you think you’ve got the skills and passion to help us reach our exciting fusion targets, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
R&D at Tokamak Energy
Paul Noonan, R&D Director at Tokamak Energy talks about his work overseeing all research at the company. He discusses the two research strands of i) the ST40 tokamak and ii) the development of high temperature superconductors.
Managing operations for fusion energy
Gideon Hammond, Operations Manager at Tokamak Energy, began his career as an apprentice and now looks after the construction of the ST40 tokamak. He works right through from tools to paperwork and here he gives us an insight into his work.
Tokamak Physics for fusion energy
Tokamak Physicist Otto Asunta works on the control system of the ST40 tokamak. Here he talks about tokamak diagnostics and the real-time control of the shape and position of a tokamak plasma.
Magnet Engineering for fusion energy
Magnet Engineer Greg Brittles works on developing the core high temperature superconductor (HTS) technology that will go into Tokamak Energy’s next HTS tokamak. Find out about the high temperature superconducting tapes for future tokamak magnets.
Electrical Engineering for fusion energy
Electrical Engineer Ronald Newell describes his work on the power supply of the ST40 tokamak.
Part of the Engineering in Fusion series.
Superconductor development for fusion energy
Robert Slade is HTS Development Manager at Tokamak Energy. HTS stands for high temperature superconductor and is an important material on the path to faster fusion energy. Rob tells us about his work in HTS magnet development for fusion reactors.
CAD design for fusion energy
Damian Lockley, CAD Designer at Tokamak Energy, tells us about his work on the diagnostics and building layout of the ST40 tokamak.
Power supply design for fusion energy
Adrian McFarland, Head of Electrical Engineering at Tokamak Energy, discusses what goes into the design of the power supply for the ST40 tokamak.
Tokamak Engineering for fusion energy
Senior Tokamak Engineer Bill Huang describes his varied work for Tokamak Energy. Currently Bill is testing various components and instruments that will go into the ST40 tokamak.
Control Systems Engineering for fusion energy
Control System Engineers Lucy Scott and Ed Pinkney talk about their work on the ST40 tokamak’s control system. This is like the nervous system of the tokamak which activates all the subsystems that go to run the machine.
