Star Scientific has just launched a Meet the team series to give an insight into the great crew that makes up the organisation.

In the first of six videos, the series kicks off with Chief Technology Officer Steve Heaton, who has provided the scientific leadership within Star Scientific since 2007.

Steve manages a portfolio of research projects and relationships with industry, academia and government with a view to realising HERO®’s potential to unleash the hydrogen economy and transform our energy future.

He is passionate about radio astronomy and galaxy dynamics which provided the background for his work on Muon Catalysed Fusion at Star Scientific.

Steve grew up in the city of Lake Macquarie on the New South Wales Central Coast in Australia where he spent a lot of time on the lake, sailing and paddling. Today the outdoors remain his other passion and he enjoys cycling, camping and spending time with his family.

He holds a Master of Science in Astronomy from Swinburne University.
