Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN)
Under her leadership, GAIN continues to serve the nuclear energy community by facilitating access to the world-class capabilities of the national laboratory system. Through public-private partnerships, GAIN helps move innovative nuclear energy technologies toward commercialization, while ensuring the continued safe, reliable, and economic operation of the existing nuclear fleet. In addition, GAIN works to ensure that clean energy plans value the opportunity nuclear energy provides to meet decarbonization and sustainability goals.
As director, Christine has facilitated and participated in numerous industry webinars and other speaking engagements on advanced nuclear energy. She has testified before state legislatures and is regularly invited to introduce advanced nuclear energy to utility commissioners, energy planners, and investors. She also works with energy stakeholders outside of nuclear to develop an approach to future scenario planning focused on energy transitions.
Prior to GAIN, she served as the operations director for a venture capital firm focused on bringing private investment into developing an advanced nuclear sector to help speed these technologies to market. Her knowledge and experience include leading a nuclear division for a consulting firm, working in long-term research and development with the Electric Power Research Institute, and performing regular maintenance on nuclear plants to ensure reliable operation of the steam generators.
She received her bachelor’s in chemical engineering from North Carolina State University and her Master of Business Administration from Lynchburg College. Outside work, she is pursuing a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo and enjoys camping and hiking to disconnect from the digital world.
