Mr Simone Pupeschi and Mrs Marigrazia Mascardiniare are visiting us from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, for two months. They are working on thermo-mechanical behaviour of granular materials under extreme loading conditions (stresses, high temperature, and neutron irradiation), with the applications towards self-sustained fuel cycles for nuclear fusion reactors.
