Who are we ?
Established in March 2018, Voices of Nuclear is an association of volunteers, employees and supporters of the French nuclear industry, with no economic, institutional, union or political ties.
The association, run by and for employees, aims to regain the pride in being players in an exceptional scientific and industrial sector and to re-establish facts about nuclear energy.
Myrto Tripathi has chaired Voices of Nuclear since its creation on March 20, 2018. The idea of this this association came to her after three years spent gravitating in what is commonly called the “COP circuit”, with the aim of best participating in the climate protection effort.
Claude holds a doctorate in engineering from the Ecole Centrale de Paris. He began his career at SGN (Business Unit Engineering) en 1980, and since then has participated in research and development in various domains of the nuclear fuel cycle.
Guillaume follows nuclear issues at the European Union level for the French government. He previously worked for the promotion of research on carbon-free energy and scientific communication. These experiences convinced him of the need to promote (a) rational (V)voice(s) on energy issues.
An employee of the industry for over 30 years, Sonia works today on economic security issues. She previously worked in the Legal, Corporate Communications and General Secretariat departments. The tremendous assets of nuclear energy to meet the needs of individuals and industries led her to invest herself in the Voices since the beginning of this adventure.
International development manager
Jadwiga, a Polish national, joined the nuclear engineering consultancy Oakridge, in France, in 2019, where she works on EPR reactor systems at Hinkley Point C. She holds a European Master in Nuclear Engineering double degree from Politecnica de Catalunya and ENSTA Paris Tech. She completed internships in various fields of nuclear engineering with research organizations in Russia, Spain, the Czech Republic and France (at CEA).
Armen has more than 15 years of experience in energy and infrastructure. Having held several operational and executive positions in the nuclear and renewable industry (Areva) and then as an advisor for infrastructure funds and energy sector players, where he was deeply exposed to the entire value chain. Above all, he is very concerned about the protection of the general interest as regards the choices of energy supply for a given system. Armen holds a Master’s degree in Engineering from INP Grenoble and an MBA from HEC Montreal.
Florent Le Goux
Florent is an Engineer Geologist at Orano Mining. After 10 years of expatriation working on mining exploration projects, he now conducts resources estimations of uranium deposits. He started his career as a geologist considering that to dedicate his professional skills to this commodity was an efficient way to take his share of the fight against climate change. His path and experience in France and abroad have strengthened his conviction that the societal recognition of the assets of nuclear in the face of the energy, social and environmental challenges of this century goes through a better knowledge and understanding of the public, and that all the professionals of the domain can have a role to play in it.
Serving advice to the Executive Board, to support the international development of the Voices:
Raquel is a Sustainable Development engineer from Mexico City, she holds a master’s in development studies from the Institute of Development Studies in the United Kingdom.
She has conducted extensive research about public acceptance and communication in the nuclear industry; focusing on using digital communication tools.
Through her research she seeks to contribute to change the current image of the nuclear energy industry and gain public trust and acceptance.
