Dr. Ed Waller - UOIT


Title: Perspectives on Radiation Safety, Nuclear Security and Protecting the Environment at Ontario Tech U

 In this talk I will briefly outline my transition from industry to academia, some of the research projects I worked on while in industry, how my time in industry affected my views on research, and the pros and cons on transiting from industry research into academic research. After setting the stage, I will delve into my current research specifically in the cooperative areas of safety, security and the environment. Finally, I plan to discuss specific research performed in diverse areas such as aerosol dispersion, dose visualization and mapping, emergency response tools, and low dose investigations on human and non-human biota utilizing electron paramagnetic responance (EPR) spectroscopy.
