Small modular reactors aren’t a new concept...
I lead the nuclear business for Arup based in London. I’m a physicist and chartered engineer with specific interests in new nuclear siting and planning, EIA and design across the full civil nuclear lifecycle from new build to waste disposal.
With a background in nuclear assurance I believe that successful projects can only come from an integrated, safety-led approach, with true multi-disciplinary design collaboration and engagement from constructors and operators at an early stage. This enables all relevant design decisions to be considered to ensure a fit-for-purpose solution for the full operational lifecycle.
Outside Arup I’m an active member of the Nuclear Industry Association’s New Build Group and a founder member of the Institute of Physics’ Nuclear Industry Group.
