Roger Shaw served as a Scientist and Consulting Health Physicist with the law firms of K&L Gates LLP as well as McCarter & English LLP, supporting attorneys and counseling clients on issues related to all types of radiation and to the nuclear industry generally, preparing case analyses, and selecting and preparing expert scientific/medical witnesses. Mr. Shaw’s technical expertise stems from 34 years of applied experience in the commercial and government sectors in nuclear plant operations, radiation protection, radiological engineering, radiological effluents, emergency management, occupational safety and radiation litigation. Mr. Shaw has worked at nuclear facilities for over 20 years as a senior level director/manager, radiological engineer, health physicist and emergency response team member.

THREE MILE ISLAND NUCLEAR STATION
Served as First Director of Radiological Controls/Occupational Safety tasked with reorganizing the radiation protection/industrial hygiene departments at Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant Units 1 and 2 into a single department, with savings of $5M+ in 5 years.
Played an integral role for 6 refueling/major maintenance outages at both PWR's and BWR's, the longest being a 5-year major plant modification/maintenance outage at TMI-1 in the aftermath of the 1979 TMI-2 accident.
Successfully completed a rigorous evaluation by a ‘Red Team’ lead by Admiral H.G. Rickover, in preparation for the safe restart of TMI-1, following 5 years of shutdown after the TMI-2 accident.
Directed the TMI-2 Radiological Controls Program during the final shipment of damaged fuel to the Idaho Falls DOE site, and achievement of Post-Defueling Monitored Storage in 1993.
Directed Radiological Controls and Radiological Engineering programs at TMI-1, which received the highest NRC SALP (Systematic Assessment of Licensee Performance) ratings for 11 consecutive years.

Directed programs that attained goal of no personnel exposures in excess of the regulatory limits during 15 years of management of the radiation protection programs at TMI-1, TMI-2 and Oyster Creek plants.


First radiation worker to enter the TMI-2 damaged containment (entry #66) and perform radiological surveys of the reactor coolant pumps and pressurizer.
OYSTER CREEK NUCLEAR PLANT
Served as Director of Radiological Controls/Occupational Safety at Oyster Creek BWR, achieving goals of over 4 years of operation without a single NRC cited Notice of Violation (NOV), and dose records for the lowest month, year, fuel cycle and outage in
plant history during this time, while reducing the operating budget from $20M in 1993 to $8M by 1997.

Projects and Committees:
Project Manager for the first U.S. commercial nuclear power plant cohort cancer mortality studies by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and Columbia University.
Chairman, Indian Point Emergency Preparedness Independent Expert Task Force, chartered to review the Indian Point Emergency Plan in response to an assessment report by a former FEMA Director, as chartered by the Governor of New York (2003-2009).
Consultant to FirstEnergy Corporation on the assessment and remediation of radioactivity in groundwater.
Member of ANSI Standard Committee, ANS 5.7.2, Post-Accident Radiation Monitoring.

Invited instructor, USNRC training of Kazakhstan officials for nuclear facility D&D.
NEA/ISOE ALARA Meeting, U.S. Delegation to France for BWRs (1998).
Member of the U.S. Delegation to Hungary on Nuclear Power (1991).

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
Designated by GPU Nuclear (GPUN) as the corporation’s single representative on the Bechtel Corporation’s proposal team for the 1996 bid on the Hanford Management and Integration, 5-year, $25B DOE contract.
Directed the radiation program for all Radiation Generating Devices (x ray machines, accelerators, radioisotope sources) and rewrote/maintained the Facility Design Radiation Protection Manual while a Research Scientist at Battelle Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
Served as the Radiation Safety Officer for all Federal and State Radioactive Material Licenses for all Battelle PNNL facilities.
Served as the Manager of Radiation Monitoring for all Plutonium Production and Storage Facilities at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation during the final processing of 750 kilograms of weapons-grade plutonium.
Hanford site facility work included spent fuel reprocessing, uranium-plutonium-americium processing, high-level defense waste storage, shallow-land burial, hot-cells and large-scale laboratories (including rad-chem-bio), decontamination canyons, sub-critical pile research facility, Californium Multiplier, as well as loaned special assignments for DOE Headquarters and Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (uranium enrichment).
Prepared the first-ever centralized Radiation Worker Training Program at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, and instructed over 3,000 Rockwell Hanford workers, following the 1976 Americium Ion Exchange Column Accident which destroyed the 241-Z processing facility for any further use. Performed facility safety analysis for long-term lay-up following the accident.
Appointed by GPUN President Philip R. Clark, member of the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Decontamination and Decommissioning for U.S. Uranium Enrichment Facilities (Oak Ridge, Paducah and Portsmouth), to provide committee representation for President Clark.
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
Participated in a total of over 50 emergency preparedness drills, shift drills and formal exercises as a participant, controller, and scenario developer at Three Mile Island and Oyster Creek Nuclear Plants. Approved all radiological related emergency procedures and Emergency Dose Calculation Manuals (EDCM).
Served as a FEMA REP Evaluator at numerous nuclear plant sites for graded exercises.
Participated as Group Coordinator Radiological Controls for one actual declared Site Area Emergency event at TMI (security event), as well as an actual primary to secondary leak event at TMI-1 (Alert Emergency Classification per USNRC).
