Kay is a DPhil student at Wadham College. She has a Bachelors Degree with Honours from the Australian National University. Her previous work focused on the influence of helium plasma exposure on tungsten for use in the ITER divertor. At Oxford, she will be furthering her interest in fusion. Her project combines experimental techniques and computer simulations to study irradiation damage in iron-based alloys for use as structural materials in next-generation fusion reactors.
