Alicia Raftery


Graduate of EIT InnoEnergy Master's Programme


Alicia is an InnoEnergy Master's graduate in Nuclear Energy (MSc EMINE). In 2016 she was one of the proud winners receiving the Sigvard Eklund award at the SKC (Swedish Centre for Nuclear Technology) annual symposium in September 2016 in Hindås.

Driven by her passion for the field of nuclear energy, and through close cooperation with her KTH PhD student supervisor, Kyle Johnson, she created a composite nuclear fuel of uranium silicide and uranium nitride using a relatively new sintering method called “spark plasma sintering” (SPS). She even uncovered a new "unknown" ternery phase. 

Alicia has recently started her PhD and will spend the next 2 years in the USA, followed by two more in Belgium.
We can only imagine what she will achieve next!
