This webinar continues our look at our pathfinder activities in the current phase. The subject of this webinar is pathfinder 6 and will discuss the development of a Magres Database for improving FAIR data in the magres community. This webinar will be presented by Sathya Sai Seetharaman from STFC, Harwell


The CCP-NC community consists of academic and industrial research groups from across the United Kingdom, supported by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. I begin the webinar by talking about the CCP-NC community and their research leading to the need for a Magres Database.

In the first half of the talk, I present the technology stack of the prototype database version 1 and its current state where I’ll talk about my development efforts to improve its FAIR compliance to a reasonable degree and the challenges it presents.
The second half of the talk focusses on why CCP-NC want an improved database version 2 and how it will serve the community better than version 1. This section of the talk will cover our vision for the magres database v2 and PSDI’s pathfinder initiative for the CCP-NC Magres database project. I will conclude the talk with the development route we are exploring for version 2 with the multi-faceted technical guidance from PSDI and their partners.


Sathya is a senior computational scientist of the Theoretical and Computational Physics Group (TCPG), working at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, in Harwell campus of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). He currently leads the pathfinder project for developing the CCP-NC Magres database, jointly funder by CCP-NC and PSDI.

He holds a PhD in Metamaterial Physics from Exeter University. Before joining STFC, he has worked for 4 years in industry as a research scientist developing wireless power transfer technology and the associated software tools for commercial and industrial applications.

The pathfinders aim to focus development in strategic areas with the aim to explore and establish exemplar systems that can be brought under the PSDI umbrella and act as templates for future phases of the project.

The PSDI team looks forward to seeing you at the webinar, if you have any questions you can always get in contact with us.
