Rebecca Newson

Rebecca studied Physics at the University of Bath, during which she worked at Quintessa for her professional placement year. Her final year project was based on dose assessment calculations for application to nuclear security for the University of Liverpool. As a graduate, she has now re-joined Quintessa as part of the Assessment and Decision Support team and is working on a variety of projects involving mathematical modelling.


Rebecca’s main scientific area of interest is nuclear and sustainable energy. Outside of work, she is busy trying to find fellow musicians in Henley to start up a clarinet choir. Having moved from the Warrington to Henley on Thames office, Rebecca notes that the weather has improved but that she misses the lunchtime tennis.
