Dr. Bob Mumgaard
Bob received his PhD in plasma physics at MIT, focusing his work on how to accelerate fusion energy towards a zero-carbon future. As CEO and co-founder of Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) he leads the company strategy and technology development. Fusion offers a transformational energy generation technology that produces no emissions or long-lived waste. With limitless and equitably distributed fuel this energy technology offers a radical shift in humanity’s relationship with energy and the environment. CFS is developing fusion energy based on new novel superconducting magnets coupled with the established science built from decades of research by the world’s governments. With a goal to commercialize fusion energy soon enough to make a difference.
