We are delighted to announce that Dr. Frédérick Bordry, special advisor for Energy to the Director General of CERN, and former Director of Accelerators and Technology at CERN, will join Transmutex's Advisory Board. Passionate about Energy conservation issues, Dr. Bordry has been a long-time advocate for sustainability in energy science at CERN (link). He will bring to Transmutex his considerable expertise in accelerator technology, large project management, and scientific collaborations.
Dr. Frederick Bordry is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Electronique, d’Electrotechnique, d’Informatique et d’Hydraulique in Toulouse, France, with a PhD in electrical engineering and another in energy conversion (Doctorat d’Etat) from the Institut Nationale Polytechnique, also in Toulouse. He spent the first ten years of his career teaching and conducting research at these two institutes before joining the CERN in 1986. From 1994, he played a key role in the design and construction of CERN’s flagship particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which made possible the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012.
He was Director for Accelerators and Technology at CERN from 2014 until 2020, responsible for the operation and exploitation of the whole CERN accelerator complex, with particular emphasis on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and for the development of new projects (post LHC accelerators) and technologies. He followed closely the major LHC upgrade (High-Luminosity project), as well as all the non-LHC research projects such as ISOLDE and the HIE-ISOLDE project, n-TOF and its new experimental area (EAR2), the AD and the ELENA upgrade, and the work in the North Area, especially for NA62. All of these essential experiments contribute to the diversity of particle physics research beyond the famous LHC. Dr. Bordry is a member of the Scientific Council of the French Parliament's committee on science and technology (OPECST - Office parlementaire d'évaluation des choix scientifiques et technologiques) and of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee.
