River Bennett

River Bennett is the Operations and Development Manager at Generation Atomic. While growing up on Nantucket Island surfing, swimming, and sailing, he became interested in the issue of global water and sanitation access. The internships and volunteer work he did in this sector led him to understand the complicated problem of addressing energy poverty with clean and affordable technologies, a topic that inspired him to study energy policy at The University of Virginia. After graduation he moved to Barcelona, Spain where he works as a math and science teacher while completing a post bac in order to pursue nuclear engineering at the graduate level.
