Caroline Cochran

Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, Oklo

Caroline Cochran cares deeply about the environment and health, which underlies her dedication to making advanced nuclear energy a reality. As the founder and COO of Oklo Inc., Caroline Cochran is leading the team towards building a very small advanced reactor generator that can be waste-negative, carbon-negative, and replace the world's dirtiest and least reliable remote power sources. She brings with her a wealth of experience, from being a manager in 16 projects, including 10 start-up projects, to founding 5 different organizations. 

Cochran is the first author of several published papers, and currently is an editor for a nuclear energy education and advocacy website. She earned her BA in Economics and her BS in Mechanical Engineering from University of Oklahoma and her MS in nuclear engineering from MIT.
