UKAEA at the TYC London event

A group of enthusiastic employees of UKAEA attended to an event organized by the TYC in the Queen Mary University located in London, UK on May 10th.

UKAEA talents

Michelle Tindall traveled to London from South Yorkshire where UKAEA has a new site with scientists allied to achieve the commercial fusion in upcoming years. She shared her fusion’s experience with the PhD students.

Priti and Bella are two inspirational women involved in the fusion field. They emphasized the importance of the studies of materials, and their behavior at nano-scale level at extreme temperatures. Most of the students at the event have expertise in this matter.

Jacob and Sam are the two scientists working for the STEP project. They have more than five years experience and know-how of prototyping and integration of components in a tokamak (JET and ITER).

Julita (myself) recently joined STEP and the tokamak digitalisation challenge. I am striving for simulating different components of a tokamak. I shared my knowledge with the students.

The talks

I was very pleased to hear that most of the studies involved the application of IA with GPUs and Tensor Flow, as well as HPC cluster Tier 1 such as ARCHER, and some other chemical researches that use Tier 3 clusters that London Universities own. Some projects are still using local cores in their studies, that is the case of the lovely chair: Chengcheng Xiao. Congratulations also to Fabian, who won the poster competition by doing a study of the graphene deformation.

Latino American Scientist in the UK

I was thrilled to speak face-to-face in Spanish (my mother tongue) with successful scientists in the UK: Jorge Ontaneda and Rachel Crespo Otero.

Event Catering

We enjoyed an extensive range of the finest and delicious coffee breaks, lunch, and our happy ending with wine and snacks. Thank you very much to the organizers for the invitation and kindness received throughout the event.

Personally, I had nostalgic feelings towards parts of university in Edinburgh by hearing about CP2K on ARCHER. I can say that this conference somehow took me to the past at uni moments, and oddly also to the future, I had the opportunity to talk more with colleagues about the fusion business. Thanks UKAEA for this! ❤
