Thunderbird Project - Software developer
The Berlinguette Group is a multi-disciplinary research group at UBC Department of Chemistry focused on alternative energy technology. The members bring a wide range of expertise in chemistry, physics, engineering and software development, and has done research into clean energy materials, CO2 conversion, advanced solar cells, and much more.
One project in the Group is Thunderbird, which is researching advanced nuclear fusion. This group is "combining electrochemistry with nuclear fusion science to drive fusion events at lower temperatures that currently known", and is working towards creating "a low-cost energy source that can scale within the span of a human lifetime".
