Ed Waller



I am a full Professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), in the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada and am currently an NSERC/UNENE Industrial Research Chair in Health Physics and Environmental Safety, collaborating with the Senior Chair holder, Dr. Anthony Waker.

I earned my BSc in Physics (Hons) and MScE in Chemical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Fredericton, New Brunswick and my PhD in Nuclear Engineering and Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York (RPI).  I worked for over 15 years in industry for Science Applications International Corporation, primarily in threat assessment, health physics and applications of radiation.  In 2003 I joined the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. 

I hold a number of certifications, such as Professional Engineer, Ontario (PEng), Certified Associate Industrial Hygienist (CAIH) and Certified Health Physicist (CHP). I teach a variety of courses including radiation protection, health physics, environmental effects of radiation, environmental modeling, Monte Carlo methods and nuclear forensics at UOIT. My research is in areas of emergency response, radiation dosimetry (internal and external), applied health physics, radiation safety, counter-terrorism and threat assessment.  

I hold a private pilot license (not actively flying), and I actively scuba dive. My preferred sport is rugby (not so much to play anymore but certainly to watch) and I have been known to play in the odd soccer game once in a while.
