Microsoft hires two directors for its nuclear development initiative

After reports last September that it was looking for someone to implement a global small molecular reactor and microreactor strategy to power data centres, Microsoft has hired Erin Henderson as its director of nuclear development acceleration, and Archana “Archie” Manoharan as its director of nuclear technologies.

Before joining Microsoft, Henderson spent more than a decade at the Tennessee Valley Authority in various roles, including as performance improvement manager at its Watts Bar Nuclear Plant.

Manoharan has spent more than 15 years in the energy industry, and was former director of nuclear strategy and programs at Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC), a company developing Micro Modular Reactor (MMR) technologies, where she oversaw long range nuclear strategy as well as key stakeholder partnerships for the company’s MMR deployments.
