Dr Hamish Nichol
Sector Lead, Applied Technologies

Hamish joined us as he wanted to play his part in tackling the incredible challenges we face and use his expertise to ensure Reaction Engines reaches its full commercial potential. He has a PhD in experimental quantum physics and with his extensive experience and deep knowledge of commercialising technology, he’s the perfect fit for us.

He leads all activities in the Energy Sector for our Applied Technologies division. A very broad sector covering anything that doesn’t fly or have wheels, so essentially all stationary applications. As a senior member of the team, he’s involved in the day-to-day operational management of the team and leadership of cross-company activities. He works with customers to create strategic technology partnerships and is responsible for customer delivery projects.

Working on our ground-breaking projects inspires him every day. He believes the technology and IP developed from the SABRE programme and the developments within the Applied Technologies team are both unique and game-changing, and that the knowledge gained in commercialising our products will help future development of the core technology.

Hamish is helping create strong partnerships with our customers that will lead to mutual commercial growth while ensuring their operations achieve maximum energy efficiency.
