Our People

Bringing together the top minds in nuclear science, engineering, business development and project finance

At TerraPower, we have a team of highly trained nuclear physicists, engineers, project managers and operators with experience developing, building and operating fast and light water reactors for a variety of applications. Our team includes expert staff and consultants, many of whom have worked for the world’s most prestigious laboratories and energy and engineering organizations. Major contributors also include individuals who have received the highest honors in their fields—technical society fellows, international prizewinners, and recipients of the Enrico Fermi Prize and E. O. Lawrence Award.

Every member of TerraPower’s team shares a vision of using nuclear science for its fullest potential while making nuclear technology even safer and more cost-effective, adaptable, environmentally sustainable and resistant to proliferation. We work here not because we are interested in incremental improvements, but because we are each motivated to develop transformative technologies that benefit the environment and human health.
