When he isn't fixing or breaking code, Paul enjoys proselytising for nuclear energy and making the most of the Cambridge lifestyle.

 
 
Thomas Zillhardt

Thomas Zillhardt Thomas continued with a DPhil (PhD) at the University of Oxford. His research was aimed at the study of mechanical deformation mechanisms in quasi-brittle materials with novel and advanced synchrotron and neutron techniques, with a particular focus on nuclear graphite. In addition to a full EDF UK studentship, Thomas was granted over 700 hours of beam time at national and international X-ray Synchrotron and neutron sources, including ESRF and Diamond Light Source. Thomas now works as a Research Associate for the University of Manchester and the Henry Royce Institute, financed by an Innovate UK grant to develop hyperspectral (quantum) digital tomosynhtesis for the medical and NDT sectors, in particular tumour diagnosis, and also continues to work on synchrotron projects for the nuclear, aerospace and geology sectors. The project Thomas completed at Cambridge with Prof Ian Farnan, during his MPhil on radioactive glass dissolution was a decisive factor in his choice of an academic career.

 

Jamie Gillespie works for Baringa Partners,  a management consultancy with specialisms in the energy and resources sectors.  Baringa Partners work in areas such as: Thermal power generation; renewables; nuclear; energy trading; distributed energy and new technologies and regulation.  Jamie has worked with a number of clients across a range of areas and on projects focussing on lots of different geographies and is very much enjoying his work.

 

Rob Abel, as planned, is working back at Rolls-Royce undertaking their Engineering Graduate Scheme. Rob is working with, amongst other colleagues, a Graduate from Pitesti, Romania.

 

Greg Gakis

Greg Gakis has started a PhD at Cambridge. The project is on autonomous vehicle estimation, sensor fusion and control and is co-sponsored by Mclaren. "The aim of the research is to examine the performance limits and trade-offs in autonomous vehicle estimation and control from a fundamental and applied perspective including the development of new algorithms to address key challenges."

 
Kinjal Dave is working for BAE Systems (currently in their consulting part, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence).  Her first placement was a PMO (project management officer) for Legal and Export Control but she is now involved in more technical work.  Kinjal is a junior research and development engineer at AI Labs in Chelmsford and is working with the High Power group looking at ceramics and their high voltage capabilities. In the future there are roles open at Sellafield and ONR - which would mean using her nuclear background!

 

Kinjal is really enjoying the travel aspect to her role as she gets to travel in the UK and I also she has visited Sydney!  Kinjal said "The MPhil really helped me to hone my problem solving and analytical skills."
