Jessica Lovering is a Hub Fellow and the co-founder and co-executive director of the Good Energy Collective, a policy research organization with the mission to build a progressive case for nuclear energy as an essential part of the broader climate change agenda. Her research focuses on how commercial nuclear trade affects international security standards and how very small nuclear reactors could be deployed on microgrids. She was formerly the Director of the Energy Program at the Breakthrough Institute, a pioneering research institute changing how people think about energy and the environment. Her work at Breakthrough sought policies to spur innovation in nuclear power technologies to drive down costs and accelerate deployment as part of a solution to climate change and economic development. Jessica received her PhD in Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University.
