Hani Al Anid
Deputy Manager, Nuclear Division
Dr. Hani Al Anid completed his PhD in Nuclear Engineering at the Royal Military College of Canada. For his doctoral thesis, he developed a transport code analysis using MCNPX to propagate an extrapolated particle spectrum through the atmosphere in order to estimate the radiation exposure during solar particle events at aircraft altitudes. He is also a graduate of Queen’s University, obtaining his Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics (Computing Option).
Dr. Al Anid works as a Project Manager for ISR, and has been with the company since 2012. He performs technical and scientific work as well as project management within the nuclear emergency response division as well as for the radiation protection industry. Dr. Al Anid has taken part in the management, development, execution, and evaluation of various nuclear emergency response exercises and scenarios. He has participated in emergency preparedness and response projects for several organizations and utilities in Canada and internationally.
Dr. Al Anid's project experience includes working as the project manager for Exercise Intrepid 2015, a national full-scale exercise to be held at the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station in November 2015. Dr. Al Anid is also the project manager and technical SME for an R & D project with the Canadian Space Agency, for the development of a gel-based Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-based dosimeter for space crew applications. In 2014, Dr. Al Anid participated in the development and preparation of Exercise Unified Response, a full scale nuclear emergency response exercise held to confirm the Nuclear Emergency Response (NER) capability of the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station. In 2013, Dr. Al Anid was one of the main technical resources as well the project manager for the GCC Regional Radiological and Nuclear Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan project. He participated in the development of a regional emergency response plan to co-ordinate and harmonize response efforts between all six member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Additionally, Dr. Al Anid has taken part in several other projects, including an international table-top exercise for the GCC Emergency Management Centre, involving six countries, held in Kuwait, NEREVAL (CFB Esquimalt), a table-top exercise sponsored by the IAEA held in Kuwait, the National Nuclear Emergency Preparedness Workshop series sponsored by Health Canada in 2013, and shielding assessments for BTL cyclotrons.
