Dr. Lemay has published scientific articles in the Health Physics Journal, and Radiation Protection and Dosimetry.
Dr. Lemay authored several of the key licensing documents for nuclear power plants in the areas of Safety Analysis, Risk Assessment, Environmental Impact Statement, Accident Consequence Assessment, and Monte Carlo Shielding Analysis.
Finally, Dr. Lemay is also presently a member of the Canadian Standards Association Technical Committee for Nuclear Standards, and he was a member of the committee that created the N288.2 Standard for Calculating the Consequences of a Release of Airborne Radioactive Material for Nuclear Reactor Accidents and the N1600 Standard General Requirements for Nuclear Emergency Management Programs.
Nichole Havelin, B.Sc., PMPSenior Manager, Nuclear Safety
As the Senior Manager of Nuclear Safety at Calian, Nichole Havelin and her team provide support for nuclear safety analyses and licensing, from new design to facility D&D. Her team has experience in various aspects of nuclear safety including: hazard analyses; safety assessments such as criticality (including operational processes, transportation, and V&V), NDA, fissionable material handling, shielding & radiation protection, and environmental protection; waste management; and commissioning of new facilities, commissioning of transportation packaging, and decommissioning. Her team also provides project planning, management, and scheduling of various size projects. Mrs. Havelin also has additional responsibilities including performing technical writing, as well as oversight and review, project quality assurance and business development.
Mrs. Havelin has detailed experience across the Canadian and International nuclear complex from new design to facility D&D; in program and project management, safety, engineering, operations, and technical training & instruction. This consists of program management of the U.S. DOE Nuclear Criticality Safety Program, including International Collaborations (UK and France), to the management of daily activities for other criticality safety engineers and experts, as well as working (and qualified) in multiple facilities across the DOE and NRC complex and the public sector. Mrs. Havelin participated on the OECD/NEA International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project as well as the OECD/NEA International Reactor Physics Evaluation Project for over a decade each. Her experience also includes all aspects of nuclear reactor operations, including senior control room certification, operations engineering, and technical training & instruction.
Mrs. Havelin’s participation in Professional Societies includes Treasurer and Professional Development Chair of Women In Nuclear – Ontario, member Canadian Nuclear Society, member Project Management Institute, Co-Chair of ANSI/ANS-8.20 American National Standard for Nuclear Criticality Safety Training, Working Member of ANSI/ANS-8.28 American National Standard for Non-Destructive Assays, member ANS Nuclear Criticality Safety 2013 and 2009 Technical Program Committee, member International Conference on Nuclear Criticality Safety 2011 and 2007 Technical Program Committee, National Program Chair for the Young Members Group of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), Executive member for the Young Members Group (ANS), and member of the Professional Development Committee (ANS).
Dr. Hani Al Anid, PhDSenior Manager, Emergency Preparedness (Nuclear)
Dr. Al Anid is the Senior Manager, Nuclear Emergency Preparedness at Calian. He performs technical and scientific work as well as project management within his division and for the nuclear safety and 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. 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 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's project experience includes working as the project manager for Exercise Synergy Challenge 2018, Exercise Unified Control 2017, and Exercise Intrepid 2015. These national full-scale exercises were held at nuclear facilities in Canada and involved participation from all organizations involved in the response effort to a nuclear emergency, from the utility, municipality, region, province, and the federal government. Dr. Al Anid was 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 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.
Christine McNally, B.A. ScSenior Nuclear Analyst
Christine McNally has a B.A.Sc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Ottawa. She has over twelve years of experience in the nuclear industry with a focus on nuclear criticality safety and experience in nuclear materials management (safeguards and transportation). While at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), formerly Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL), she managed the Nuclear Materials Management group becoming a qualified Program Authority for the Nuclear Materials and Safeguards, Nuclear Criticality Safety, and the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Programs. While working within the regulatory framework of these three programs, Christine developed and reviewed policies and procedures to ensure safety and compliance.
Christine has developed and delivered nuclear criticality safety training modules (both in classroom and computer-based training modules) for all levels of an organization, from those in administrative and technical roles, to those in emergency response/first responder roles. Christine is certified to teach technical topics. Christine has also attended a 3-week advanced specialized training to learn to facilitate large group workshops, training and discussions. She has spent the last two years facilitating regular workshops on topics such as high-performance organizations, change, accountability, and providing effective feedback and coaching.
