We are a research driven startup founded at Imperial College London, developing research into disruptive new technologies to combat climate change.
Our multi-disciplinary R&D team covers a variety of science and engineering areas including physics, artificial intelligence, aeronautics, and biotechnology.
Our projects focus on sustainable and renewable technologies. Through experimentation, complex simulations & iterative design we aim to improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of our technologies.
We aim to combat hydrocarbon reliance using novel technologies to limit the CO2 released into the atmosphere. Our ultimate aim is to actively remove CO2 via Direct Air Capture to reduce and mitigate against climate change.
At QA-UK, we hope to pave the way to a greener, more prosperous future. We aim to produce reliable green power, extract CO2 from the atmosphere and offer a carbon negative method to desalinate seawater granting communities around the world access to clean water.
Our primary projects: the Solar Vortex Tower and the Quantum Black Butterfly aim to make green energy and water more readily accessible than ever before.
QA-UK personnel also teach the highly successful ‘Entrepreneurship for Physicists' class at Imperial College, recognising that while research is integral to the success of our mission, change is most rapidly achieved through collaboration.
John Hassard is a Reader in Physics with particular interest in heavy quark decays. He has branched out to energy issues and worked on technologies and policies governing nuclear power and the proliferation of nuclear weapons.
Oleg has been Chief Engineer for QA-UK projects since its inception - from analytics to setting up laboratories in Qatar. Building upon his experience from The Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding, Oleg oversees construction & engineering solutions.
Julio is a qualified physicist as well as cybersecurity & blockchain expert who has worked on projects for Citi Bank & the Centre for Financial Technology. Due to his experience on the project, he oversees SVT research as well as the DevOps for QA-UK.
Nick is a physicist with interests covering a broad range - from fluid dynamics to quantum theory of matter. In his Master's Thesis he explored the cooling effects of Vortex tubes and how they can be used to capture CO2. His primary area is fluid dynamics analysis of the SVT before he starts his PhD on the QBB.
Can is a computer scientist with a strong interest in machine learning and techniques in big data to overcome computational complexities. His work is on speeding up the Navier-Stokes solver so we can approximate fluid profiles in significantly reduced times.
