We are delighted to announce that Professor Bruce Hanson (University of Leeds) has joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at UCL as an Honorary Professor.

Professor Hanson is an internationally leading expert on the nuclear fuel cycle, waste management & decommissioning. Prior to joining the School of Process, Environmental and Materials Engineering at the University of Leeds, Bruce enjoyed a high level career at the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) from where he brings a wealth of experience in research and strategy to his academic role.

Professor Hanson joins the Department of Chemical Engineering to strengthen our growing nuclear programme which includes work by Professor Angeli, Dr Shearing, Professor Simons and Dr Brett on methods of separating and refining spent nuclear fuel, Dr Lettieri on life cycle assessment and Professor Fraga on modelling the nuclear fuel cycle.
