Women at the Forefront of all Things Nuclear.

The Heroines of Nuclear Energy

There was a time when no one would have thought women would dominate in the field of nuclear engineering, but women are taking charge and becoming the leaders in this traditionally male-dominated field. We can look to the women themselves and their predecessors for inspiration.

Lise Meitner

In the nuclear energy field, female pioneers have spanned a number of centuries and continents. In 1878, Lise Meitner was born in Vienna, Austria, and became a physicist. She contributed to the discovery of nuclear fission—in fact, the element Meitnerium (Mt) was posthumously named in her honor.

Dr. Shirley Jackson

The Honorable Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D. became the 18th president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on July 1, 1999. She is a theoretical physicist. Since going to Rensselaer, Dr. Jackson has led the development of the Rensselaer Plan (the Institute’s strategic blueprint), begun implementation of much of the Plan and secured a $360 million unrestricted gift commitment to the university.

Dr. Jackson holds a Ph.D. in theoretical elementary particle physics from M.I.T. (1973) and a S.B. in physics from M.I.T. (1968), and her research specialty is in theoretical condensed matter physics, especially layered systems, and the physics of opto-electronic materials.

In 1995, President William Clinton appointed her to serve as Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). She was Chairman of the NRC from 1995-1999.

As Chairman, she was the principal executive officer of and the official spokesman for the NRC, and had ultimate authority for all NRC functions pertaining to an emergency involving an NRC licensee.

While at the NRC, she initiated a strategic assessment and rebaselining of the agency. This lead to a new planning, budgeting, and performance management system that put the NRC on a more businesslike footing in its activities.

Dr. Jackson is the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate from M.I.T. in any subject! She is one of the first two African-American women to receive a doctorate in physics in the U.S. and is the first African-American to become a Commissioner of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

She is both the first woman and the first African-American to serve as the chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and now the first African-American woman to lead a national research university and the first African-American woman elected to the National Academy of Engineering.

Kathryn A. McCarthy

Kathryn McCarthy is a successful American engineer who was initially tempted to follow her passion for the clarinet and start a music career. Her aptitude for math and science at school, however, turned her mind and studies to engineering.

She was inspired into the nuclear field because of her family roots. Her father was a chemical engineer. Kathryn's career has taken her to Germany and the Soviet Union, but she has predominately worked in the USA in fusion and fission technology. She is a powerful woman in the nuclear industry. She’s responsible for $250 million worth of research programs and new developments.

Kelle Barfield

Barfield is Vice-president at Entergy Corporation, but she started her career in nuclear journalism and is now an influential advocate in the industry. Twenty-five years ago, she started working as a technical editor in the field and it helped shape her substantial understanding of the sector.

Barfield has remained actively involved in nuclear since—in her current role, she seeks to raise awareness in the public about nuclear energy and create policies in the field. Her bold thinking and expertise inform the work of many nuclear engineers in this field.

Susan Hoxie-Key

Susan Hoxie-Key is nuclear fuel services manager Southern Nuclear Operating Company. Hoxie-Key grew up following space programs and knew, from an early age, that she wanted to study engineering in college.

Whilst studying she thought nuclear energy seemed really interesting so she went down that path and hasn't looked back. Hoxie-Key has worked in core design and nuclear fuel procurement, and says that being able to design in the field of her passion, put her ideas into motion and create electricity, is hugely satisfying.
