"The NNL Postdoctoral Scheme offers me freedom and options to grow personally and professionally."
I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester. As part of my research, I designed and tested an electrochemical molten salt cell to measure hydrogen diffusion in zirconium and its alloys at temperatures above 200°C.
I joined NNL because I wanted to work towards a more sustainable and energy efficient future. My work at NNL’s laboratory on the Sellafield site helps to investigate and upgrade different reprocessing and recycling methods to reduce the environmental impact the used fuel might have.
My role includes analytical and laboratory operations within the separation science labs, electrochemical measurement of corrosion parameters and testing and operating the molten salt rig that is being built for fuel reprocessing/recycling.
At NNL I am able to work in a hybrid environment where I can do research while at same time this research is directly applied to the nuclear industry and provide our customers the solution they seek. The NNL Postdoctoral Scheme offers me freedom and options to grow personally and professionally.
