Monaco 5.0

They are young, joyful and extremely motivated. The Monaco Fellow Cuvée 2017 has just arrived and is getting settled.  Like their 20 illustrious predecessors these five postdoctoral researchers will be staying at ITER for two years under the sponsorship of the ITER-Monaco Partnership Arrangement, gaining experience and pursuing research in their respective fields of specialization.

Ryan, Di, Toon, Aneeqa and Himank—the latest group of Monaco Fellows—are seen here with mentor David Campbell, head of the Science & Operations Department. Through the Monaco-ITER Partnership Arrangement signed in 2008, the Principality of Monaco has funded five groups of ITER postdoctoral fellows. (Click to view larger version...)
Ryan, Di, Toon, Aneeqa and Himank—the latest group of Monaco Fellows—are seen here with mentor David Campbell, head of the Science & Operations Department. Through the Monaco-ITER Partnership Arrangement signed in 2008, the Principality of Monaco has funded five groups of ITER postdoctoral fellows.
Ryan Sweeney (US), here since November 2016, works on disruption mitigation.  "Alternative energy research and fusion are part of the ultimate solutions to the ever-growing energy problems of the world and it is great to be able to contribute to that. Being at ITER is for me a fantastic opportunity for professional growth but also for personal development because I'll be able to learn about French language and culture."

Di Hu (China), who specializes in disruption-related macroscopic MHD (magnetohydrodynamics), has been an enthusiastic member of the team since October. "It's a great opportunity to get involved and gather experience in my field. And on a more personal level, it's fun to be part of and learn from the international fusion community here at ITER."

Toon Weyens (Europe) arrived early this year to work on 3D stability with a good idea of what to expect because he had already spent several months at ITER as part of his PhD. "It is really motivating to contribute to such an outstanding scientific endeavour; but as a community, ITER is also an amazing and inspiring place to be."

Aneeqa Khan (Europe) has worked on material erosion/migration and on fuel retention in ITER since joining ITER in December 2016. "This is the biggest fusion project in the world and it's where the action is right now!  The best people in my field are right here and the strong connections with the other fusion institutes in the world make for an atmosphere of excellence."

Himank Anand (India) is the last of the Monaco Fellows to take up his post. He works on controlling the shape and position of the plasma and on the heat flux on the vessel wall. "ITER is definitely the best place to be to work on fusion and an excellent place to exchange ideas with the best people in all fusion-related fields."
