Areas of expertise lie within fluid-structure interactions, experimental thermal-hydraulics, turbulence, reactor safety, system modeling, and advanced nuclear reactor concepts.
Dr. Reese is the Director for the Oregon State University Radiation Center and instructor in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Health Physics. The Radiation Center is a multifaceted research facility specializing in research related to the nuclear sciences. The facility houses unique capabilities including the 1.1 MW Oregon State TRIGA Reactor (OSTR), gamma irradiator, thermal hydraulics testing laboratories, radiochemistry laboratories, and extensive radiological spectral and counting equipment. His research focus includes neutron radiography, MCNP, and reactor dosimetry. He obtained a PhD from Colorado State University (1997) in Radiological Health Sciences and a BS from Oregon State University (1991) in General Science. He also holds a Senior Reactor Operating license for the OSTR. He is certified by the American Board of Health Physics and is a member of the Organization of Training, Research, and Test Reactor Executive Committee. Previously, Dr. Reese served as the Reactor Administrator of the OSTR for seven years. Prior to that he served as a Research Scientist at Battelle Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Research activities at Battelle centered on development of a CR-39 automated counting system for low energy neutron environments and responsibility for nuclear accident dosimetry technical evaluations and measurements. He completed his Bachelor’s degree in General Science at Oregon State University and obtained a Ph.D. in Radiological Health Sciences from Colorado State University.
