Congratulations Sam!

Congratulations to Sam Gibson, a Durham Fusion CDT student who successfully defended her thesis at viva in April 2021. Sam’s thesis is entitled “Measurement of the Current Profile in Fusion Tokamaks using the Motional Stark Effect Diagnostic” and supervisors are Professor Ray Sharples (Durham University) and Dr Nick Hawkes (CCFE).

Sam has now started working at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) as a PPPL/UKAEA fellowship postdoc on the Motional Stark effect (MSE) system on MAST Upgrade.

Well done Sam!
