Alan Charles - Supervisor: Dr Geoff Parks
After completing an MEng in Chemical Engineering with the University of Birmingham, I spent three years in industry working on nuclear submarine design with Rolls Royce and Babcock International, with a secondment to the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna focusing on environmental remediation. I am now studying for a MSc with Imperial before moving to Cambridge for my PhD. My MSc and PhD projects with Geoff Parks are looking at optimising civilian nuclear reactor cores with different types of fuel.
