Dr Abbie Jones is a Senior Lecturer within the University of Manchester’s Dalton Nuclear Institute and is an internationally recognised expert in in the field of nuclear graphite waste management. She has been actively involved many UK and international co-ordinated research programmes, including FP7, EPSRC, Innovate UK and the IAEA. Her research interests focus on examining characterisation, decommissioning and waste treatment technologies across the UK and worldwide. This is based on interdisciplinary research within the University of Manchester and at the new Dalton Cumbrian Facility at West Lakes, with research groups established with the School of MACE and at the new Dalton Cumbrian Facility. Dr Jones is a leading academic researcher and has attracted over £7 Million in grants as PI and Co-I from a various bodies including Government, funding councils (UK and EU) and consultancy to support R&D in nuclear.
Dr Jones Research specialises in understanding of irradiated damage processes in nuclear waste involves using microstructural and analytical techniques such as Transmission Electron Microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, X-ray & Synchrotron Diffraction and Synchrotron tomography with validation through isotopic inventory and materials property modelling, in order to understand structure/property relationships.
Dr Jones has been involved in several EU and UK funded projects including five Innovate UK projects with industry, two FP7 European Union Euroatom projects; CARBOWASTE from April 2008 and ARCHER from 2011. Abbie Jones is also committee member and Work package leader of an IAEA International decommissioning network on Irradiated Graphite Processing Approaches (GRAPA) and has extensive collaborations with UK and worldwide industrial nuclear organisations.
