Webinar: ‘Making Beyond Possible: An Introduction to Reaction Engines and SABRE’, Monday 12th July at 1830-2000hrs

Another FREE Bedfordshire IMechE panel Event!

About Reaction Engines: Based in the Culham Science Centre campus, twenty minutes from the Harwell Space Gateway Reaction Engines works to unlock the future of space travel. They are developing the SABRE engine with the objective of making space and hypersonic travel more efficient, more accessible and more possible. Find out more about Reaction Engines here.

About the Speaker:

Dr Emma Ryan is a senior development engineer and Production Lead for Applied Technology at Reaction Engines. She directs efforts into setting up a production line, manufacturing thin walled heat exchangers. Her first role at Reaction Engines was a development engineer, developing novel manufacturing techniques for heat exchangers. She previously worked at Lockheed Martin UK in a similar role, industrialising wire and arc additive manufacturing for aerospace applications. She is also a technical author of an international standard (BSI EN ISO 6010) on feedstock material for additive manufacturing.

Emma is currently the Events Coordinator for the UK Mars Society, an active member of the ASTM Committee F42, was a founding member of the Women in STEM committee at both Lockheed Martin and Reaction Engines and helped set up the first IOM3 accredited Student Materials Society.

She completed an engineering doctorate on improving the reproducibility of wire and arc additive manufacturing at the University of Surrey. She earned a BSc (Hons) in Physics at the University of Edinburgh where she specialised in astrophysics-based modules and had a summer internship at the Astronomy Technology Centre based at the Royal Observatory.
