Chris Bellman provides radiation safety and health physics support for ISR. His experience is multifaceted and thus he contributes experience with radiation transport codes such as MCNP, risk analysis of practices with radioactive materials and radiological decommissioning.
During his career, Chris has worked individually and within a multidisciplinary team on projects to develop and execute radiological decommissioning survey plans for the Department of National Defence (DND), perform a health risk analysis for use of unsealed radiological sources for R&D exploits, investigate the effects of ionizing and microwave radiation on circuitry, perform project management and develop radiation safety plans for a variety of experiments and exercises.
Chris’ education is in a constant state of growth. He strives to complete his MASc. in Nuclear Engineering at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). His thesis work includes determining the efficiency of the PM7 and PM12 portal monitors for the measurement of internal contamination. This work involves developing models in MCNP and performing benchmarking experiments in a laboratory environment to validate the models.
