Thomas is a Director of Davis & Musgrove Ltd. who has a background in nuclear engineering, material science, fusion engineering, nuclear regulation and physics. He consults with clients in the nuclear industry to investigate radiation damage of structural nuclear materials, reduced-activation materials, materials strategy, nuclear shielding, regulatory matters, and member on clients engineering advisory boards. He is a committee member for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) Section III Division 4 ‘Fusion Energy Devices’ nuclear code (which is under development), with committee positions within the ‘Materials’ and ‘In-vessel Components’ Working Groups. His tasks are to develop the nuclear design code for fusion energy devices (magnetic and inertial confinement-based fusion). He has been a Scientific Advisor to the Office for Nuclear Regulation specialising in new materials qualification for Advanced Modular Reactors (AMRs, also known as Generation IV fission reactors). A former Nuclear Design Engineer at Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd. He is also a Clarendon Scholar and PhD researcher at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford. He has presented his research at national and international nuclear engineering and fusion energy conferences. His research is investigating the effect of neutron irradiation damage using advanced characterisation techniques on next-generation structural steels for nuclear fusion and Generation IV fission reactors. He holds a M.Eng. in Nuclear Engineering and B.Sci. in Nuclear Science and Materials from the University of Birmingham UK.
