Yorick Enters

Yorick joined EASAC in April 2024 after completing a PhD in plasma physics and fusion energy at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, Oxfordshire, and at the University of York, UK. His secondary education was in Scotland where he also obtained a master’s degree in physics at the University of St Andrews.  In parallel with his master’s studies, Yorick spent three months working as a software application developer at the James Hutton Agricultural Research Institute in Dundee and, during his doctoral studies, he worked for four months on energy system modelling at the TNO institute in the Netherlands.

Yorick’s work for EASAC is supported by the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), where he is based. His role as an energy policy adviser will include the development of science-based advice for policy makers in both the EU and the Netherlands.  He will support the work of the EASAC energy programme, including the production of EASAC reports for EU policy makers, and he will extract and develop the most relevant outcomes of EASAC’s work to focus on the needs of the Netherlands.  His work is expected to build and strengthen communications between DIFFER and EU and Dutch policy makers on key energy policy issues.
