Brandon Sorbom co-founded CFS with the goal of commercializing fusion energy in time to combat climate change by developing innovative high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet technology. He currently serves as Chief Science Officer leading the R&D efforts of the company. Under his leadership, CFS is the world’s leading buyer of the HTS material that goes into the magnets. A regular scientific presenter and academic speaker, Sorbom earned a BS in Electrical Engineering and Engineering Physics from Loyola Marymount University and a PhD in Nuclear Science and Engineering from MIT. While working on his PhD at MIT, Sorbom was the lead author of the paper that proposed the original design for ARC that inspired the founding of CFS in 2018 and was named a “35 Under 35” Honoree from MIT Technology Review.
