Presenter: Robert Done – Project Design Engineer – STFC – Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
Rob Done began his career as a mechanical engineering apprentice for UKAEA at Risley in Cheshire. On graduating, he joined the Science and Technology Facility Council, working first at their Daresbury site in Warrington and eventually moving to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire. For the last 30 years he has been providing the mechanical engineering support for the neutron spallation source at the site, designing equipment which provides the experimental environments for user provided test samples. Much of this equipment operates at cryogenic temperatures. Rob routinely presents a series of cryogenic training courses for both internal and external clients. He is also a lead auditor for the Council’s safety auditing team.
