CUEN is proud to invite you all to our next evening seminar on nuclear power in the UK!

Dr. Simon Taylor (Director of the Master of Finance Programme) and Dr. Eugene Shwageraus (Director of the Nuclear Energy MPhil Course), both University of Cambridge, will give insights into the history, policy and technology of nuclear power in the UK. In particular, we will discuss the recent case of Hinkley Point.

Dr. Taylor is a University Lecturer in Finance and the Director of the Cambridge Master of Finance degree. He did an MPhil in Economics at the University of Oxford and a PhD at the London School of Economics. After two years as a Fellow in Economics at St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge, Simon spent nine years as an equities analyst at a number of investment banks, including Robert Fleming, BZW , JPMorgan and Citigroup, where he was led research teams covering the European and global utilities sectors, including a key role in the privatization of the nuclear company British Energy in 1996. His research interests include: the financing of energy infrastructure, including nuclear power; and methods of valuation used by equity research analysts. He is a Research Associate of the Energy Policy Research Group at Cambridge University. His book on the financial crisis in the UK nuclear power industry was published in 2007 and he is planning to update that history to the present in a new book in the next year.

Dr. Eugene Shwageraus earned his BSc and MSc degrees in Nuclear Engineering from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel and Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from MIT . He joined the faculty of the Nuclear Engineering Department at Ben-Gurion University in 2003. Between 2009 and 2011 he served as a Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT , where he participated in and was a contributing author to the interdisciplinary study on the Future of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle. After his return to Ben-Gurion University in 2011, he served as the Head of the Nuclear Engineering Department and was appointed Associate Professor in 2012. In September 2013, he assumed the role of MPhil Course Director and was appointed University Senior Lecturer at the University of Cambridge in the UK. His research focus areas are modeling methods and design of advanced nuclear reactors as well as optimization of nuclear fuel cycles.

We are looking forward to two exciting talks, followed by Q&A and a networking session afterwards.
