How I Got Here – Maryam Adeel, Management Accountant, Tokamak Energy
Maryam Adeel, Management Accountant at Tokamak Energy, tells us about how she always loved numbers and patterns as a child, and how this – along with an interest in business as she got older – led her into accountancy. Maryam is a ACCA qualified Accountant and holds a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University. She joined Tokamak Energy as a Management Accountant in May 2018. Prior to this she was Senior Accountant at Oxford University Press from 2013 to 2018, and Financial Accountant at Aurora Fashions 2010 – 2013.
2019 Fusion Progress at Tokamak Energy
2019 has been a busy year at Tokamak Energy. We made a major announcement about progress in high temperature superconductor magnet development and we upgraded our ST40 tokamak ready to achieve fusion temperatures of 100 million degrees. Find out what has been going on at Tokamak Energy in 2019 and hear more about our progress from CEO Jonathan Carling.
How I Got Here, Jonathan Carling, CEO
Our CEO Jonathan Carling, who joined Tokamak Energy in November 2017, tells us about his boyhood love of toy cars and how he came to be working at Tokamak Energy.
Finding The Holy Grail of Energy
Bloomberg’s Moonshot series explores some of the major breakthroughs scientists are striving to achieve across multiple disciplines including the harnessing of fusion energy, eradicating dengue , discovering extra-terrestrial intelligence and the advancement of neuromorphic computing. Tokamak Energy is featured here in episode one.
Neutral Beam injection and its importance
What is neutral beam injection (NBI)? How does it work? And why is it important for fusion in tokamaks? Barney Stevens, Neutral Beam Engineer at Tokamak Energy, tells us all about it.
Data collection for High Temperature Superconductor development experiments
Georgina Howes has a computer science background. Here she discusses data collection for the High Temperature Superconductor development experiments, her work with Tokamak Energy and what she enjoys about the role.
Mechanical Engineering for fusion energy
Mechanical Engineer Tony Langtry talks about his work on the mechanical design of the ST40 tokamak. He discusses the mechanical stresses on the machine and the material requirements for the tokamak.
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.
