    Mr. Hall has significant expertise in experimental testing and laboratory instrumentation. A primary focus of Mr. Hall’s experimental research at DEI has been investigation of technical issues related to processing of transuranic waste streams at US Department of Energy (DOE) environmental management (EM) sites, including at Hanford’s waste treatment plant (WTP). As part of this work, he has prepared test procedures, performed and coordinated supporting analysis, and worked as a certified test lead responsible for test execution and data analysis. He also has extensive experience in experimental testing to qualify chemical cleaning and treatment processes for use at commercial nuclear power plants, and has provided on-site technical support during the implementation of these processes at US and non-US nuclear facilities.

    Mr. Hall is also a subject matter expert in particle size distribution (PSD) measurements. He has applied his expertise to a number of research programs related to management and processing of nuclear waste streams, and has developed alternative PSD analysis methods to address challenges unique to multi-constituent waste slurries in caustic brine carrier fluids. He is also an expert in microhardness testing, and has supported numerous programs to characterize near-surface strain hardening of nuclear plant materials and components.

    Mr. Hall holds a B.S. in Biology and an M.S. in Environmental Science, both from Christopher Newport University. Prior to joining DEI, Mr. Hall worked for Mitsubishi Nuclear Energy Systems where his work focused on the development of the combined operating license application (COLA) prior to submittal to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Specifically, Mr. Hall focused on reviewing environmental studies produced by subcontractors for compliance with NRC guidelines and coordinating environmental work projects between subcontractors for the advancement of the design process.
