Mr. Oliver Martin has a MSc and a PhD in mechanical engineering and a MSc in "nuclear science & technology". Since June 2006 he is working at the Institute for Energy and Transport (IET) in Petten, the Netherlands, which is one of the 7 Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and often referred to as "JRC Petten". He spent his first two years there dealing with integrity issues of spent nuclear fuel canisters and fuel cladding under long-term storage conditions before moving to his present work field, the integrity & ageing assessment of light water reactors (LWRs), for which he is project leader at JRC Petten. Beside currently operating LWRs his project also covers research on degradation of innovative water cooled reactor concepts like the Supercritical Water Reactor. Mr. Martin is involved in a number of European projects on integrity and ageing of LWRs and heavily involved in the international association for R&D on Gen II & III reactors, NUGENIA. He is a member of the IAEA Technical Working Group on Life Management of Nuclear Power Plants (TWG LMNPP) and the Metallic Subgroup of the Working Group on Integrity and Ageing of Structures and Components (WGIAGE) of the OECD-NEA.
