Activities in my workplace

Going back onsite after around two years of lock-down brought me some nice surprises. Here are some of the activities I attended this year at UKAEA.

STEP Showcase

On May 12th, I was able to present what our team in STEP has done in the past two years. The team is leaded by Andrew Davis. Under his supervision, I work on the digitalization of the divertor monoblock. I had a sparkling day! I met Adamos Lukenskas who is working on the optimization of the design of the divertor monoblock in real life! 🙂

During the showcase, I’ve encountered more nice STEP people. I was glad to find a rainbow of diversity. Here are some pictures of people from Italy, Bermuda Island, Chile, Brasil, and of course… me from Peru! 🙂

Let’s talk about gender

“Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”. UKAEA is aware about, then an event to promote the women networking as part of our health and wellbeing in our daily. This event was hold on Wednesday 27 April.

It was great connecting with outstanding women in the fusion field and those who work in support of other women rights.

Star Makers

On April 13th, an informative movie was presented during our break. This documentary film highlighted the record energy produced over five seconds at UKAEA. This world record-breaking fusion energy demonstration was the work of several years as well as the effort of passionate and dedicated employees. I was pleased to meet in person one of the starmakers: Damian King!

In my eyes, this movie evidences the work of a great woman and professional: Ferrnanda Rimini
