- Colin is a physicist with a PhD at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (CMS experiment) on heavy-ion cross sections and the connection to astroparticle physics. As co-author of the hadronic interaction tool CRMC, he has deep knowledge in nuclear physics. After several years in the private industry, Colin joined Kyoto Fusioneering. Here, he is author of the high-temperature fusion blanket SCYLLA design and currently oversees technical development of the UNITY programme for fusion thermal cycle and fusion fuel cycle in Japan. He is also a visiting researcher at Kyoto University.

The rise of the private fusion industry and how Kyoto Fusioneering
accelerates fusion power on the grid" The private fusion sector has
grown over the past year, with more than 30 fusion start-ups to date.
This development also means that, for the first time in history, private
funding exceeds public funding. We will discuss what this paradigm
shift means for the coming years and whether we can expect to see
grid-scale fusion power sooner than a DT plasma at ITER. Kyoto
Fusionering's mission differs from that of the other fusion start-ups
and is to de-risk the technology for fusion power plant systems. We will
highlight the challenges and show the R&D solutions that Kyoto
Fusioneering expects to provide to the industry.
