Hawkins Welcomes Materials Engineer Giuseppe Scatigno

Hawkins welcomes chartered materials engineer Dr Guiseppe Scatigno to our Bristol Office.

Giuseppe graduated with a 1st Class Master’s Degree in Materials Science and Nuclear Engineering from Imperial College London. During this period, he worked at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in the Incident and Emergency Centre, performing radiological dose calculations, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

He completed a PhD, researching electrochemistry and corrosion, where he focused on environment-assisted corrosion phenomena, working closely with several nuclear utilities across the world. Giuseppe also spent time in Japan working on the development of Gen III+ reactors at Hitachi-GE Ltd. Giuseppe's PhD work required the extensive use of state-of-the-art microscopy techniques, experimental traditional techniques, as well as computational, mathematical, and analytical methods.

After completing his PhD, Giuseppe worked as a Research Associate for Imperial College, sponsored by EDF Energy, to study stress corrosion cracking resistance of dry cask storage units designed to be used for the interim storage of spent nuclear fuel. Giuseppe was then employed by EDF Energy, where he worked as a Corrosion Engineer and Chemist. Giuseppe worked closely with power generating stations before becoming the lead on water cooling systems and interim spent fuel storage. Giuseppe defined the chemical inhibitors regimes and corrosion monitoring systems to ensure the appropriate management of cooling systems. Giuseppe was the lead for several chemistry and corrosion R&D workstreams, partnering with academia, as well as private and national laboratories, to support the safe continuous power operation of the UK nuclear fleet. More recently, Giuseppe worked on the EDF Hinkley Point C project as a subject matter expert, working on establishing an appropriate corrosion management plan.

Giuseppe is an Associate who will be a great asset to both our materials and power & energy teams.
