Mark Sarsfield is an NNL Research Fellow in actinide chemistry and holds visiting Research Fellow positions at the University of Manchester and Leicester. He is a domain leader for an EU FPVII project (ASGARD) and the NNL technical lead for a European Space Agency program exploring the use of americium as a heat source for space power systems. Mark supports the Magnox and THORP reprocessing plants, High Level Waste plants and sits on the Magnox Reprocessing Technical Committee at Sellafield. He leads projects on fundamental chemistry of key actinides including neptunium speciation and characterisation of plutonium dioxide for long term storage using Raman spectroscopy. Mark is also the editor of the NNL Science Journal.
