Research Project: Radiation Damage of Advanced Shielding for Compact Fusion Reactors
Supervisors: Sam Humphry-Baker (ICL), Katharina Marquardt (ICL), Jack Astbury (Tokamak Energy)

Mashu graduated with a MSci In Theoretical Physics from the University of Glasgow. During his master’s project, he worked on a Particle Physics project determining the existence of hypothetical vector-type fermion. His PhD project investigates the radiation damage on a candidate shielding material to be used in a spherical tokamak. Specifically, the radiation induced gas formation, displacement damage and their effect on the microstructure of the material.

The CDT provided me with the tools to develop my career as a researcher and to participate in Outreach activities to broaden my skills. I really enjoyed my time as a student in the CDT and look forward to continuing collaborations with the research groups there.
